Egeland, Schmidt earn EDN awards
Estherville Daily News Managing Editor David Swartz announced the newspaper’s Athlete of the Year awards in cross country at the Estherville Lincincoln Central/Armstrong-Ringsted banquet on Sunday.
Junior Brooke Egeland received the award for the girls team while senior Scott Schmidt was named the recipient for the boys squad.
Egeland competed in all 10 races this season, helping ELCAR to a second-place finish at the Lakes Conference and part of the state-qualifying girls team.
Schmidt was a four-year participant in the cross country program and helped recruit members prior to the 2008 season so that ELCAR fielded a full team in most of the races.
