WEEK 4 Announcements

(Go to MEDIA and click NEWS to view previous news posts & announcements) 

We finally had our first race last week and it was awesome! Both teams placed in the top 5 with the Girls in 3rd and Boys in 5th. Brooke Stromsland (4th) and Olivia Schmitt (14th) were all county. Jack Erwin & Owen Wenberg worked together with Erwin missing a medal by just 1 spot! In the also open we had many stellar performances. Ashley Whitis and Tegan Baker looked strong in leading the Girl's squad while freshman Nathan Rolla led the way for the Open Boys. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate for us on Saturday. The Varsity Boys displayed some toughness in completing the 5k race on a very challenging course. While the meet decided to continue, we headed home with student safety in mind. We look forward to getting back on the course Tuesday. A lot of things going on this week, so please read carefully.

Shout Out: Josephine Synovic displayed a lot of heart in finishing her first ever 3 mile. Evan Selby also faced many obstacles, but ultimately hurdled over all of them to complete his first ever 5k!
