On Saturday, October 19th, Glenbrook South hosted the 2019 CSL Conference Championship. At the end of the day, 1,162 runners crossed our finish line from all 12 CSL Schools. 47 of the 52 non-varsity GBS runners that crossed the finish line met or broke their season records. The GBS course is not known for its fast times, so this is an amazing accomplishments. All year, Conference has been the goal of the time to peak and it was accomplished by the runners.
Our Varsity team finished 3rd behind the perennial powers of New Trier (#6) and Maine South (#9). Will Kelly (Sr) led the team finishing in 6th with a time of 15:22.12 (3th fastest GBS Performance at Home). Behind him were Brian Hiltebrand (So) and Will Houser (Sr) finishing at 15:48.70 and 15:50.59 respectively. All three of the aforementioned athletes made the CSL South All-Conference Team.
