The cross-coutnty duo of Whitney Hora (C. Milton Wright HS/Kingsville, MD) and Bill Steele (Rising Sun HS/Conowingo, MD) were named to the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Weekly Honor Roll for their performances as the NCAA East Region Championship Meet at Winter Park Place in Boston, Massachusetts.

Hora, a sophomore, placed seventh, finishing the course in 23:09, and helped the Lady Wildcats to an 11th place finish.  She became just the second female runner to be named All-Region, and her seventh place finish was the highest ever for a Lady Wildcat harrier. 

Steele, a junior, finished 14th, as he completed the course in 32:12, helping the Wildcats to a 17th place showing.  His efforts also landed him All-Region honors, becoming the first male runner to earn the All-Region accolades.
