Du Quoin Girls Cross Country Looking to Avoid Sophomore Slump After State Trips in XC and Track Last Year

DU QUOIN — The Du Quoin Lady Indians cross country team is looking for continued success after a good 2018 season and a 2019 spring track season that led to a girl’s Class 1A state championship.

Du Quoin cross country coach Eric Kirkpatrick says many of his girls were on that state championship team, and he hopes that provides further motivation for the fall.

Four of Kirkpatrick’s top six returning runners are sophomores this year.
