Wauwatosa West featured young cross-country teams this season, leaving the Trojans with room to grow in the future.

Sophomores Chloe Beaudoin and Mike Detlaff were named most valuable players in the program.

"Chloe had an awesome sophomore year," Wauwatosa West cross-country coach Jack LoPresti said. "She was first team All-Woodland Conference and set a new school record for 5,000 meters at 19:21. She had an excellent year, and her career is just getting started.

"Mike Detlaff gave us steady running, a mental toughness and strong leadership. The young sophomore has a bright future ahead of him having made great strides in racing and training this fall."

The Trojans girls took seventh at the Woodland Conference meet, while the boys placed sixth.

Freshman Isabel Strand was named most improved in the girls program, while Sterling Heit, Nolan Harris and Ethan Krouse were most improved on the boys side.

LoPresti feels freshmen Colin Jacobi and Adam Justin are two future stars for the Tosa West boys.

"These two guys could be really good in the future," LoPresti said. "It will be exciting to watch their progress. Signs look good for the Trojans boys harriers. The next few years will be really exciting with all these young guys improving."

Seniors in the Tosa West cross-country program were Max Herteen, Delaney Reed and Lauren Casper.

Other runners included Moira Brown, Mya Morgan, Toriah Haanstad, Aniyah Chambers, Sophia Ruggeri, Eliza Soczka, Emma Gabriel, Marlo Korman, Gabe Fisch, Kyle Cevecko and Ngaru Nen.
