Week 7 Announcements

Sunday, September 24 2017

Info for week 7 is posted below. Hopefully everyone had a fun and exciting homecoming week. It was great to see our teamwork and pride on full display throughout the week. We had quality practices which gave way to many sizzling performances on Saturday. Despite the heat, the majority of our runners ran their best races of the season. Coach West called Saturday a "toughness check" and it was awesome to see our athletes race with mental toughness and a sense of determination. Ethan Schommer and Owen Wenberg led a tight 33 second convocation of Eagles to the team title in the varsity boys race! The win was the first major invitational for the Boys team in 8 years! The F/S Girls also had an outstanding day as they took home a second place trophy! Tegan Baker(6th) & Ashley Whitis (7th) finished in the top 10 to lead the team. Danika Dorch, Brianna Lippmann were the 3rd and 4th scorers. Anna Polak scored her first team points in the fifth scoring position as she finished in 27th.  In the Open, Jay Patel (2nd) and Michelle Menconi (5th) led the charge running with confidence and conviction. Hannah Grant (27th of 84 runners) had a seasonal breakout race in the Girls Varsity race. Lastly, Freshmen Jimmy Mroczka, Daniel Gfesser, and Adrian Kupiec all displayed exceptional toughness as they raced their way to lifetime personal bests!
