Ottumwa High cross country runner Cody McConnell on Tuesday signed a letter of intent to join the Indian Hills cross country team. McConnell will compete under the guidance of first-year IHCC head coach Scott Barnes.
McConnell has competed at the varsity level for both the cross country and track teams in all four of his years at OHS. He qualified twice for the state cross country meet, including last fall. The senior is expected to compete in the long-distance races tonight for Ottumwa at the Don Newell Classic inside Schafer Stadium.
