The Chesterton girls cross country team sent a handful of runners to North Carolina this summer and the dividends have shown in pre-season workouts.

The Trojans open the 2018 season at the NIC Stomp at New Prairie on Saturday with high hopes.

“We have had a solid summer of training and the Varsity girls' recent workouts are evidence,” Chesterton coach Maggie Wolgamot said. “We are excited for this season and are in hot pursuit of once again making the trip to Terre Haute this fall for State.”

The top four returning runners benefited from a trip to the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina this summer and have returned in top form.

“Shelby Bullock, Nalani Malackowski, Kara Krol and Taylor Edwards, along with freshman Bailey Ranta, appear to round out the top five,” Wolgamot said. “Senior Becca White is right up there with them.”

Depth should be an aid for the Trojans with the emergence of Frances Clancy, Peyton Westphal, Kaitlyn Van Kley, Libby Boster and Kayla Kirchner also competing for varsity spots.

“As most know, anything can happen when it comes down to the nitty gritty races,” Wolgamot said. “Considering the current state of our team, I am optimistic that it will be another exciting season for Chesterton.”
