Marengo's Adams receives IHSA academic honor

Marengo’s Katie Adams, the area’s top girls distance runner in cross country, was named an honorable mention selection to the IHSA All-State Academic Team announced Friday.

Adams proved she excels in the classroom as well as while running. The IHSA names 26 student-athletes to its first team, then chooses 50 honorable mentions from around the state.

Each member school is invited to nominate one female and one male athlete who has participated in two activities and has a GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.

Adams’ former track teammate Allison Rogutich was an honorable mention All-State Academic Team selection last year.

Adams, who will run at Iowa next year, finished ninth in the Class 2A girls race at the IHSA Cross Country State Meet in the fall, her only loss of the season, after spraining an ankle early in the race. She won the Class 2A 1,600 meters last spring at the IHSA Girls Track and Field State Meet.
