Huang is the boys IL Champion, clocking in with a personal best 20:29. Hernandez became the Girls IL Champion with a time of 22:23. Huang became the first Asian male, and Hernandez became the first Hispanic female to win the meet.

Led by head coach Marina Lopez, the Blue Tigers will travel to Platte Ridge Park Sat­urday, November 2 to attempt to qualify both teams to state and improve upon last year’s success when three runners qualified individually the for state: current Junior Story Downing, and current sophomores Estrella Hernandez and Elliot Abnos.
