Bo Dinger (left) and Alexis Young (right) were named as The Spirit's Fall Sports Outstanding Player for the boys and girls, respectively, and both were stars on their respective cross country teams.

Young, a four-year Lady Chucks runner, helped her team capture the District IX championship for the first time in three years. After being last fall's Outstanding Player runner-up, the senior received 33.4 percent of the vote total — or 402 of the 1,203 female ballots cast.

Dinger ran away with almost 41 percent (482 of 1,182 votes cast) of the male vote to garner the boys' Outstanding Player honor.

The sophomore harrier was the driving force behind Punxsy claiming its first District IX cross country title since 1998, before going on to become only the 13th All-State boys' runner in school history.
