The 1997 Season

The 1997 season was a season of firsts for LPCC. We were ranked for the first time ever at eighteenth in the state and we had our first individual girl, Teresa Spence, make it to the state meet at Indiana University. We also advanced as a team to Semi-State for the second consecutive season. At Semi-State, our team suffered from many injuries. Brandy Ryder, who held the number one spot almost all season, suffered with several running related injuries throughout the tournament season. Our number four runner, Val Pattengale, was also not in top form due to major illness, and Callie Schrader was struggling with hip flexers.
