Last year OHS sophomore Marlie Houston finished second in a down-to-the-wire battle with winner Isabel Seidel of University Lake School. Houston won the title her freshman season. She is also the defending Wisconsin Little Ten conference girls cross country champion.
OHS win the girls team title at Nature Hill last season. See article on last year’s meet.
Scheduled to compete this year are teams from Watertown, West Bend East, Germantown, Mukwonago, New Berlin West, Janesville Parker, Madison East, Milwaukee Messmer, University School, Brown Deer, and Lake Country Lutheran. Seidel graduated this past June so Houston is the top returner runner.
The meet also features a boys competition. OHS’s Paul Timm, who graduated in June, was the boys winner last year.
