JV Girls: Even with a limited squad, girls almost accomplished a perfect score. First to fourth were Janice, Luisa, Jessica, and Brooke. That was a beautiful sight! Lexci, Stephany, and Grace made up the winning team. Jessica is our ROTM.
JV Boys: Boys had a tough day but Nate showed he is ready to run fast and ran a smart race by finishing in 6th. The boys finished 3rd with David, Tanner, Matthew, Riley, Hamzah, Evan, and Sam finishing out our team. ROTM is Nate.
