Ike Cross Country to be Featured in Book


YAKIMA, Wa - Eisenhower's cross country teams have been a perennial power and now somebody is going to write a book about their success.

Making the state rankings are nothing new for the Cadets' cross country teams and especially no different this fall. Under the watchful eye of longtime coach Phil English the Cadets' boys teams have won 19 district titles in the last 21 years.

This caught the attention of former Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle reporter Sam McManis who wants to write a book about the sport and got a tip from his daughter, who herself was a one-time cross country standout in high school.

McManis will continue writing through the end of this cross country season and hopes to have his book completed within the next year.
