During her sophomore year at Hilbert College, Meghan Sorbera’s life was tragically cut short. She participated in cross country her freshman year and was a great teammate that season. As a way to honor her love for running and to celebrate her favorite time of the year, the cross country team will host an annual “Meghan Memorial” race in the month of October.
