A seasoned runner for 41 years, Lake cross country coach Ken Mysinger is a man who competed in running events while serving for the United States Air Force in such as places Hellenikon AB in Athens, Greece in the late 1970s.
 
Mysinger started a running “breakfast club” that gets his athletes up early in the morning and on area roads. Now in his second season mentoring the boys and girls cross country teams at Lake, the coach hopes his strategy is paying off.
 
Mysinger says this year’s men’s team will be led by senior co-captains Zack Powell and Louis Szilagyi. Szilagyi was a regional qualifier in cross-country and all-league runner in 2008, as well as a regional qualifier in the 1,600 meter run during the 2009 track season. Powell was the Suburban Lakes League 1,600 champion and regional qualifier during the past track season.

"Our goal is to keep our kids in the football game," said Gutilla, 56, who is also Stritch's athletic director. "We want to be in the game in the fourth quarter to give ourselves a chance to win. We're young and inexperienced and we don't have a lot of starters back, but the starters we have back are pretty good football players."
