Every year, the IATCCC awards one female cross country athlete with the "Ms Cross Country" award. For 2020, the recipient of the Ms Cross Country award is Zoe Duffus of Fort Wayne Carroll High School.
Duffus had 4 1st place finishes in 2020, including at the IHSAA Cross Country Sectional 12 - FW Northrop and IHSAA Cross Country Semi-State 3 - New Haven. Duffus capped off her senior XC campaign at the IHSAA Cross Country State Championships with a 2nd place finish, crossing the line in 18:02.
