Freshman Cate Atkins ended the Titans' two-year absence from the IHSA girls cross country championships with her qualification as an individual out of the Elmwood Sectional last week.  This week she ran almost an identical time at the State Meet course, crossing in 19:19 for 67th place.  She got out a little fast in 6:02 but held onto her position during mile two, running 6:42.  She came charging back in mile three with a 6:34 for her 19:19, besting her time from Peoria Heights by 16 seconds on the same course and maintaining her 10th fastest EPG time for the course and her third place on the Top Titans leaderboard behind Julie James and Karly Miller.  The next three years look bright for Cate as we work towards getting back to State and earning some more PRs over the next three years.

Hunter Cobbley made his mark on the record books on November 7th by turning in a superlative performance at the IHSA State meet.  Cobbley ran the three mile course in 14:58.7, a time which would have won the meet in other years, but earned him 9th place and All State honors in one of the fastest years in Class A history.  9th is also the highest finish for a boy in EPGXC history, besting his 16th place finish from 2014.

Following Cobbley into the chute was junior Andy Layden, crossing in 15:44.  Look for Andy to make a run at Cobbley's record next fall.

The Titans #3 on the day was senior Ryan Filkins, who ran a stellar race, setting a lifetime PR of 16:11, a best time by almost 20 seconds.

EPG's #4 was junior Adam Ludy, running 16:55 for three miles.

The senior tandem of Shelby Heffron and Quinn Killian were next across the finish line, crossing in 17:07 and 17:09.  Both have worked incredibly hard this year and have improved vast amounts from their 2014 seasons.

Our final finisher on the day, freshman Noah Smith, crushed his personal record, dropping from a 17:46 to a 17:11!

Congratulations to all EPGXC team members on your hard work this summer and fall, best of luck representing the Titans on the track this spring!
