TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WIFR) - If there is one thing we know, Winnebago has a pretty good girls cross country team. The girls added another piece of hardware to their collection this fall, winning the Open Division at the XC Town USA Meet of Champions in Indiana on Sunday.

Running as their club team, the Winnebago Warriors, for a second straight weekend, Bago outclassed the rest of the division. Winnebago finished with a team score of 49. Second place Tcepsorp TC, the running club from Mt. Prospect, Illinois, finished with 101 points.

Winnebago senior Natalia Martino paced the team, finishing fourth overall. Winnebago finished with four girls in the top 40.

The results should come as no surprise to anyone who has followed this group of girls this fall. Last week, the they brought home the unofficial state title at the ShaZam XC Club Championships in Chillicothe, running as the Warriors. During the IHSA cross country season, the same seven won the Big Northern Conference meet, a regional plaque, and a sectional championship. Martino won the individual titles at both regionals and sectionals.
