CARLINVILLE — Local students are members of the fall 2014 cross country team at Blackburn College.
The local students and their year in school include freshman Zachary Felkel of Bethalto and senior Seth Tonsor of East Alton.
Coach Mark Hopping has high hopes for the students and the season under way.
“The men’s cross country team has the best ‘pack’ that the school has seen in several years. The ‘pack’ is the top five runners that score in meets. They are a young group, as four of the top five are freshmen, which is quite promising. The rest of the team is very solid, as they have all trained very hard and have continued to lower their times as the season has progressed. We look forward to our conference meet, which is November 1, and hope for a strong finish. The women’s team only has a roster of three, but we are hopeful that our recruiting efforts will help us field a full squad next year.”
