Ladehoff

Dave Ladehoff is the cross country coach at Central High School.

   Even though the high school cross country season ended with the state meet Saturday at Detweiler Park in Peoria, a runner’s season is never really over.

   Central coach Dave Ladehoff will take a number of runners from his team to the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships in Racine, Wisc., the weekend of Thanksgiving.

   “The girls team is done but I have four boys that said they are going and maybe a fifth,” Ladehoff said.

   The race has a division for ages above 40. Last year he was third in that division and 16th overall. The kids think it is pretty neat to see the coach run. “They will take selfies as I go running by.”
