“Chloe worked so hard and was running so well,” the coach said. “It is disappointing she wasn't able to do the postseason, but this is her first year of running cross country, and will be back.”

Chloe, in an early season interview, said she felt good about her early season with times around the 20-minute mark for three miles.

“I just joined cross country to help my 800 and help my 4 x 800 relay,” she said. “Cross country is really fun. I stayed with Sophia Helfrich the whole time in one of the races. It is cool to pace with a teammate. It is a different feeling. Running is my life. I have run since I was a little kid. My sister and brothers all ran. I am a junior this year. I hope to run in college.”
