The race was the final race in a Zionsville uniform for Uebele, Kastberg-Leonard, Torrance and Guerra.
“I have been so thankful and blessed by their willingness to change it up,” Rigg, who was in her first season as head coach, said. “Because they didn’t have to, they could have dug their heels in and said ‘I’m not doing that.’ But they haven’t, and they have really been on board. I just give them a lot of credit, it takes a lot to do that when you are a senior. To have to get used to someone else as a coach and their training methods, it has meant a lot to me that they did that.”
It was the end to a successful season for the Eagles.
The Lady Eagles broke numerous records throughout the season, won the sectional title and made their first appearance at state.
“It has been a really great year,” Rigg said. “The girls have jumped on board with a lot of new and different training. Every week surprised themselves and everyone in the state really. It has been an amazing season and I think one of the best parts was just watching their confidence grow every week. That bond of running and sisterhood has been amazing. This year has set us up for hopefully many more years of making trips to state.”
Rigg added the standards have been raised as to what is to be expected from the Zionsville program going forward.
“The bar has definitely been raised,” Rigg said. “The younger girls in middle school have seen it, and we have girls in elementary school even writing letters to our girls, it is just exciting to think that once we get something going that can trickle down. This group of girls have made history and we will build off that.”
