Q&A: Johnson, Knights feeling conﬁdent
Kaneland senior Conor Johnson is bracing for his final competitive run at Elburn Woods Forest Preserve today, as the Knights prepare to host an IHSA Class 2A cross country regional. From there, he and the team hope to advance to next week’s Belvidere Sectional, and then the state meet at Peoria’s Detweiller Park on Nov. 3. Shaw Media sports reporter Kevin Druley caught up with Johnson for this week’s edition of the Weekend Chit-Chat, discussing Kaneland’s prospects, the Elburn Woods terrain and Johnson’s prospective college major. The following is an edited transcript:
There have been ups and downs, I know, but what’s the overall outlook entering the state series?
We have a lot of potential this year. We’re definitely working hard at these practices and hitting them pretty hard. As long as we stay healthy and keep it up, we feel pretty good about what we can do. ... We’ve been strong the past few years, and it’s been a matter of reloading and getting everyone up to that level and experience.
