Kaczinski to take part in IATC senior all-star meet
One week after finishing his high school cross country career with a ninth-place finish at state, senior Eli Kaczinski will represent a pair of Northeasts at the Iowa Association of Track Coaches (IATC) senior all-star cross country meet.

The Rebel senior will be one of 29 competitors running for the Northeast region at the meet, which will be held today on the Des Moines Area Community College campus in Ankeny.

The event will open at 12:15 p.m. with an open 5K with the two big races - the senior girls all-star 5K and the senior boys all-star 5K - following at 1 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. respectively.

Kaczinski, who posted a season-best time of 16:09 this year, is not the only talented runner slated to run for the Northeast region either, as the team will feature both the 2A (Michael Melchert of Monticello) and 1A (Kyle Kehoe of Denver) state champions.

This will mark the fifth-straight year in which a Rebel boys or girls cross country runner has competed in the race. Emily Franks ran last year with Matt Bowman, Seth Mommsen and Morgan Casey also being alumni of the meet.
