Alleman senior runner Ethan Adlfinger recently announced his intentions to continue his career at North Central College. Adlfinger will compete in cross country and track at the Naperville-based school.

Adlfinger has earned five state medals in his running career, with three in track. He earned sixth- and eight-place medals in the 4x800-meter relay and took ninth in the 1600 last spring. Adlfinger is the only athlete in program history to earn a medal three consecutive years.

This fall, he took fifth in the Class 1A state meet and helped the Pioneers win regional, sectional and Western Big 6 Conference titles. Adlfinger finished 13th at the 2011 state meet.
