CHANNAHON – Avery Kittl gave it her all, until her legs could give no more.

After Kittl, a Joliet West sophomore, crossed the finish line at Community Park in Channahon on Friday, she dropped to her knees. Then she was carried to a nearby bench, where Kittl received a well-deserved embrace from her dad.

"I did this for God, I did it for my coach and I did this for my family," Kittl said. "My family has been so supportive of me through everything I do. The entire race, I thought I'm doing this for myself and the people around me."
