Madeline Kartz is a senior at Hanover Central High School. She has been running during her whole high school career. I found the time to ask her some questions about her time here running for Hanover.

My best time in cross country is 19:52.
What is your goal for the season?
My goal for the season is for the girls team to make it to semi-state as a team.
