Onalaska, Wis. (WXOW) Another major honor for one of the more decorated cross country runners from the La Crosse area.
Kora Malecek was named the 2020-21 Gatorade Wisconsin Girls Cross Country Player of the Year.
It's the second year in a row the Onalaska senior has won the award, which also recognizes academic excellence.
