None of the IL runners made all state.
“Many of the girls ran well, achieving some of their personal bests. Chloe Cooke was Indian Land High’s first girl and ran her personal best at 22:12,” ILHS coach Sara Morris said. “Many of the boys ran their best as well. Landon Cook at 19:41; Will Chapman at 20:04 – both great times.
“It was a good season, we had amazing progress throughout the year. The team has grown a lot,” Morris said. “We will lose some great seniors (James Gregory, Destiny Todd and Imani Jernigan) this year, but we have a lot of great young runners coming up.”
“I appreciate coach Chris Cuviello for helping this year,” Morris said. “Thanks to all the parent involvement, too.”
“Off-season is the most important time to train, so keep running,” she urged her team.
