According to Lauren Wilch, she has been very successful as a cross country runner. Erin Pisarick said Signe was a “great leader and very competitive.” Signe loves competing against other runners.

“My favorite meet is the State Cross Country Meet because so many people are watching. It’s a good adrenaline rush,” Signe said. Signe does love running, but she isn’t so fond of hills.
