For the first time in DC Everest high school history, an Evergreen sat atop the podium as an individual state cross country champion in 2022. Sara Mlodik raced to the top spot with a time of 18:06.6 at the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids on October 29, 2022. Mlodik finished her high school career as a three-time Wisconsin Valley conference champion and sectional champion from a week ago.
Mlodik plans to run at the collegiate level and will decide her college home in the coming weeks. Mlodik will also be a member of the 2023 DC Everest track team and plans to compete in the 400 meter and one mile events this spring.
