Southwood senior Josiah Friedersdorf signed his letter of intent to run cross country and track at Indiana Wesleyan University on Monday, Feb. 29.
 
As a high school athlete, Friedersdorf earned a total of eight varsity letters for his contributions on the Knights’ cross country and track teams. Running in college will complete his childhood dream.
 
“Track is something that I’ve always enjoyed, something that I’ve always felt very connected with,” Friedersdorf said in an interview with The Paper. “So just continuing that is something that I felt called and led to do.”

NORTH MANCHESTER -- The Southwood Knights set a school record for wins in a season and went through the Three Rivers Conference with a perfect 9-0 record to claim that championship. 
 
But they came up short of another goal Saturday night when they took their 20-4 record and number 13 ranking against third-ranked and defending sectional champion Oak Hill, who sported a 22-2 record.
 
Oak Hill trailed just once in the game and slowly pulled away from Southwood to pull out a 69-53 win to advance to the Regional.
