Aldridge also won the Fox Valley Conference Meet championship and led her team to the state meet. She won the Woodstock Regional and was seventh in the Woodstock North Sectional.
Morgan Dieschbourg, Cary-Grove, so.
Dieschbourg played an integral role as the Trojans repeated as FVC team champions and returned to the Class 3A State Meet as a team. Dieschbourg finished 13th at the Hoffman Estates Sectional and was fifth in the FVC Meet. She took 74th at state, second in C-G’s lineup.
Chelsea Gale, Prairie Ridge, so.
Gale was a Class 2A All-Stater for the second time as she took 13th in the state meet and led the Wolves to third place as a team.

Kylie Hagmann, Woodstock, sr.
Hagmann was selected as Northwest Herald Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year after making Class 2A All-State for the third consecutive season. She finished 10th in the state meet, seventh in the Woodstock North Sectional and fourth in the Woodstock Regional. Hagmann also won the Kishwaukee River Conference Meet.
Maggie Mason, Cary-Grove, so.
Mason joined the Trojans a couple meets into the season, although she had trained with them in the summer. She made an already strong team even better. She was runner-up in the FVC Meet, seventh at the Class 3A Grant Regional and seventh at the Hoffman Estates Sectional. Her time of 17:38.30 at state placed her 52nd and was the fastest time by an area girl on the Detweiller Park course that day.
