Brookfield's Sharp advances to 3-0 on the season

Brookfield sophomore cross country star Alex Sharp won her third meet in three tries on Saturday. She ran a 19:35 at Father Tolton's meet over the weekend, nearly a minute-and-a-half better than her time on that course last season.

"We will continue working on finishing strong the next couple of weeks so we'll be in a good spot for districts and state," Brookfield coach Holly Matzen said.
