Lauer placed 21st out of 135 finishers in the boys' race and Hartman finished 14th out of 125 runners in the girls' race in the 2020 PIAA Class A Cross Country Championships in November. Lau finished 19th out of 184 runners at the WPIAL Class A Championship in October.

The coaches review selection criteria such as performances at invitationals, WPIALs and the state championships and submit the names of runners for consideration. A list is developed for coaches' review and discussion, then the runners of the year, first team, second team and honorable mention lists are finalized. Each runner recognized will receive a certificate acknowledging their selections.

Congratulations to Adam, Chelsea and Thompson on this well-deserved achievement!
