The day has finally come.

The Chesterton girls cross country team will opens its season at Kesling Park in LaPorte after waiting a long time to get there.

“This whole experience has been a time of uncertainty for everyone,” head coach Lindsay Moskalick said. “Each day we get to practice and compete together is a blessing. The girls have been doing a fantastic job with everything and have adjusted to our new normal.”

One thing that hasn’t changed for the Trojans is junior frontrunner Bailey Ranta.

“I’m extremely excited to see what Bailey can do this season,” Moskalick said. “Once our spring sports were cancelled, we shifted into cross country training which has given her more time to build her base and fitness. She is going to be a great frontrunner for us.”

Junior Catherine White will follow Ranta as she looks for a breakout season as well.

“Catherine is going to make a splash this season,” Moskalick said “She has been training since the spring and it will be exciting to see what she can do for the team.”

The rest of the Trojans’ top 10 will include seniors Nalani Malackowski and Frances Clancy, juniors Bree Gentry, McKenna Handley, Liz Hibshman, and Addison Leady, along with sophomore Alyssa Dunlap.

Freshman Ciara Bonner rounds out the 10 competing for a varsity spot.

“It’s going to be fun year competing against the DAC schools like Valparaiso, Crown Point, Lake Central and Portage,” Moskalick said. “If the girls bring it like I know they can, it’s going to be a fun season.”
