 Cross Country: The season has come to an end. We are thankful for a successful year where we consistently placed second place as a team. More importantly, we saw many runners improve as individuals and stretch themselves to do better. We were blessed with an awesome group of eighth graders that were leaders and encouragers. The team was blessed with supportive parents! Our biggest accomplishment was how the team learned to build each other up. As a coach the proudest moments were when a teammate wouldn't leave until they had cheered every runner across the finish line. I could outline the many firsts, seconds, etc. but what really counts is how the light of Jesus showed through the many actions and attitudes of this year's team. To God be the glory! Thank you to the team, the parents, and the assistant coaches Mr. Gartner and Mr. Koenig. Blessed!
