PHS CC team all-state academic

The Plymouth High School varsity girls cross country team earned academic all-state honors for the 2017 season from the Wisconsin Cross Country Coaches Association. Teams and individuals can qualify for this honor by competing at the state meet as well as maintaining a certain cumulative grade-point average over the course of their high school years. The PHS girls team competed at the state meet in Wisconsin Rapids Oct. 28 and finished 13th. The average cumulative GPA for the seven competing runners was a 3.7. Members of the academic all-state team were seniors Ellie Welsch, Samantha Meyer and Carly Lilek; juniors Lauren Rabe and Amanda Triebensee; and freshmen Lilly LaPorte and Maggie Munson. Welsch, Meyer, Lilek, Rabe, Triebensee and Munson also earned individual all-state honors because they competed at the state meet and had a personal GPA of 3.5 or above. This is the seventh time in the last eight years that the PHS varsity girls cross country squad has been recognized as an academic all-state team. Individually, Rabe and Triebensee have earned the award for three years and Welsch for the past two seasons.
