Cross-country team starts year with strength in numbers; Dieringer will lead Ozaukee

The Cedar Grove-Belgium girls’ cross-country team is entering the 2012 season loaded with talent.

Seniors Tammi Del Ponte, Chloe Paul and Maria Schueller have all returned, along with juniors Molly Ison, Jericho Duenk and Kiran Seghal and sophomores Lily Paul and Kelly Brochtrup.

Coach Les Paul, who guided the Rockets to the Central Lakeshore Conference title and fouirth place in the WIAA Division 3 state meet, said he expects Del Ponte to give the team strong leadership.

That will be crucial with the loss of Kiera Depies, the squad’s top runner last year, to graduation.

“Tammi is the hardest-working athlete you can want. She had a very good spring track season and a great summer training season,” the coach said.

“We are aiming for a very strong individual effort for her.”
