    Put Your Hand on Seven - 2018 Update
    York High School announced the retirement of Cross Country Coach Joe Newton in 2016. It was a bittersweet year. In his 56 years as the York Head Coach, his teams won 28 state championships. It is a number that won't be reached in this cross country crazy state. The reason the interest is so big is because of what Mr. Newton did at this high school in Elmhurst, Illinois. I’m always approached by runners and coaches from various schools across the state when I am at meets. The common question

    20 Conference Meets to Watch in Illinois
    By Michael Newman [email protected] Before we get to the state series leading to the IHSA State Meet on November 3, bragging rights will need to be settled in conference meets across the state. For some teams, it will be a meet to get out of it safely before we head to next week’s regional meets. For other teams, it will mean a big step up point for the hopes that they have and dream about to get to Detweiller Park in November. We could not write about every meet across the state. What we

Naperville North was only nine points back in second (113 points)
