The Sports Reports
Each season a flock of newcomers fill in the void created by the loss of graduating seniors from the prior year, and each season many step to the forefront of their respective sport. This fall, Wellsboro’s Lauren Kosek led the charge, and is The Sports Reports’ 2023 Girls “Newcomer of the Fall.”

Kosek, a freshman on the Wellsboro cross country team, ran to a second-place finish at the NTL Coaches Invite, then punched her ticket to the PIAA, Class AA Championships with a ninth-place finish at the District 4 Championships.

At States, Kosek ran to a 40th-place finish.
