Congratulations to the Lady Wildcats for surviving Region 7-AAAAAA and advancing to the state meet. The varsity team finished 3rd in their race led by Samantha C, Julia E, Emma S, Kelly May S, and Ally W. Samantha C finished 1st in the race and Julia E took 14th – both bringing home medals for the Wildcats. It was truly a team effort for the Wildcats to advance to state as the 1st – 5th teams were separated by a mere 14 points – one of the closest region races ever contested. Strong runs by Emma S, Kelly May S, Ally W, Anna M, and Chloe T made sure the season continued. The JV Girls also finished 3rd in their race as KC W took 1st place overall followed by Oliva V, Ashley A, Ellie C, and Megan J.
The boys’ varsity team ran a gutsy race finishing 8th overall in the region against some of the best teams in the state. They were led by Max M (10th overall), Phineas H, Walter H, Jackson W, Cade L, Leighton C, and Sasha H. The JV boys finished 7th overall led by Andrew R. Congratulations to Vikrant B who finished 2nd overall in the Open Race. The boys should take 2 weeks off running to completely rest their bodies before starting their training for next season.
