Waukon girls cross country team returns five letterwinners in 2015 from team that knocked on last season’s State Meet door

The Waukon girls cross country team will return enough varsity letterwinning experience in 2015, five runners, to field a team score, but will face the challenge of combining those veteran returnees with a larger group of underclassmen to move those team scorers up into a more competitive position this season. Adding to that challenge will be the transition to a five kilometer (5K) distance for Iowa high school girls this season, up from the 4K distance from previous years.
“It is going to take a few races to get the girls adjusted to the 5k distance,” second-year Waukon girls cross country coach Brett Egan said. “The girls will need to have some patience as they get comfortable with the change. There was a handful of girls who decided to put in some substantial summer mileage, and I see that paying off for them early. With the transition to a 5k this fall, the strength gained from summer mileage is going to pay off in the long run.”

Waukon boys cross country team looks forward to return of all members from last year’s State-qualifying squad


Left to right - Front row: Sean Liddiard, Nate Helgerson, Miles Hansmeier, Andrew Mellick, Austin Day. Back row: Will Keenan, Tyler O’Neill, Carter Fuhrman, Noah Liddiard, Tanner Manning, Isaac Fink. Not pictured: Brock Berns, Kameron Klinge, T.J. Treptau, Hunter Jensen.

The past 10 months could not pass by quickly enough for the Waukon boys cross country team, as all eight of last season’s top runners return from the Indians’ State-qualifying team that placed 14th among Class 2A’s elite teams last fall. That first State Meet qualification for the Tribe in more than a half decade produced by a collection of juniors and sophomores who are eligible to return this season has caught the anticipative eye of others as well, resulting in as high as a top-five ranking for the Tribe among Class 2A teams to begin this 2015 campaign.
Those veteran returnees include a group of five seniors, Brock Berns, Isaac Fink, Kameron Klinge, Tanner Manning and T.J. Treptau, and the junior trio of Austin Day, Hunter Jensen and Tyler O’Neill. That crew makes up just over half of this season’s total of 15 competitors for the Indians.
