Jessica Cunningham is the only member of the HC women’s cross country team to qualify for the national cross country meet that will be held on Nov. 17 in Helena, Mont. This HC senior has been training arduously over the past summer, as she logged about eight miles per day in addition to taking care of herself through watching what she eats and making sure she gets enough sleep.
