4. Samantha Poglitsch (So., Wheaton-Warrenville South) -
Last year at this time Poglitsch got her first win as a high schooler in the frosh-soph race. This time around she is a varsity champion in 18:10 at the Wauconda Invitational. She bid her time well on the Island Lake course that is situated in the far northwest Chicago suburb. Now that she has a race under her belt, it is time to focus on the upcoming competition in Peoria at the Peoria Notre Dame Invite 9/15.
