Two ELCAR runners sign with Iowa Lakes
The Iowa Lakes Community College Cross Country Team recently signed Olivia Craig and Dane Ross for the fall 2008 season.
Craig, who is currently a senior at Armstrong-Ringsted High School, has been a member of the ELCAR cross country team for the past four years. She was also a member of this year’s state qualifying team.
“Olivia has been involved in cross country for the past four to five years, so she will bring lots of experience to the team. I think she has a great deal of talent and I am looking forward to helping her use that talent at the college level,” said coach Molly Struve.
Ross, who is a senior at Estherville Lincoln Central High School, has been a member of the ELCAR cross country team throughout his high school career.
“Dane is a hard worker and will be a positive addition to our men’s team. I had the opportunity to watch Olivia and Dane run a number of times this year,” said Struve. “They were part of a great high school program and I am confident their successes will continue while running at the college level.”
The Iowa Lakes cross country team will be starting their sixth season this fall at the NJCAA Division I level. To learn more about Iowa Lakes Community College cross country log on to www.iowalakes.edu.
