Frosh sensation Ethan Finkel is now recognized as one of the

up and coming cross country runners in the state. After a dominant season and representing the Crossroads boys cross country team at the CIF and state meets, Finkel is receiving a lot of attention these days.

Finkel was selected to the PrepCalTrack.com’s

seconds in the 5,000 meters.
