North’s Allmaras, Ebert earn SWC honors

North Medford sophomore Jacob Allmaras and junior Claire Ebert each earned recognition on the all-Southwest Conference cross country first team by virtue of their performances this season at the district meet.

Allmaras placed fourth in the boys race in 16 minutes, 33.1 seconds to earn his spot, while Ebert was fourth in the girls race at 19:32.8 on Oct. 27.
