Senior Aubrey Dague lead the Lady Comets to their fourth consecutive HNAC championship with her second place, 21:36 finish. Delaney Strasser (4th, 21:45), Emma Stinson (5th, 22:26), and Stevanna Young (10th, 22:49) joined Aubrey in the All-Conference lineup. Juniors Bryn Brumett (27th, 24:51) and MaKayla Lee (28th, 25:04) finished out the lineup and clinched the victory for the team.
We knew that the weather was finally breaking, and Winamac is always a fast course. At one point someone who was counting finishes had told me that we were looking at second by about three points, and it broke my heart for these girls. They’ve been pushing hard all year for this, grabbed four All Conference spots, and it was just a sinking feeling, like watching a buzzer beater three roll the wrong way off the rim. Then to see them literally jump for joy when they were announced as champions, well, to me, these are the moments that coaching is all about. To say that I’m proud of the effort they’ve put forth is an understatement. I’m excited to carry this momentum into the postseason, and see just how far we can push, collectively and individually.
