“We have had a
solid summer of training and the Varsity girls' recent workouts are

this fall for State.”
The top four
returning runners benefited from a trip to the Smoky Mountains in North

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.”

Kaitlyn Van Kley, Libby Boster and Kayla Kirchner also competing for varsity
“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.”
