To our cross- country team, thanks for letting me cover this illustrious season. X-C and its members have been incredibly gracious to my new-to-sports-writing self.
Congratulations again to Dorian B., Maria M., Elliot S., and Charlie S., and best of luck to the class of 2025 in their senior season. The future will be nothing short of incredible.
