JV – Our JV teams had a great season in 2016. Maggie Brown earned medals for top 10 finishes in three different meets this year. The boys improved their times week after week. Last Thursday at Monsignor Donovan was the last meet of the year for our JV. We have plans to build our program during the off season to be stronger next fall.
Varsity – We have no varsity girls this year but the boys team is one of the largest we’ve seen in years with 9 runners. Led by Jake Holloway, the boys ran to a top 5 finish last Thursday at Monsignor Donovan in Athens. They continue to improve their times weekly and will have a chance to earn a spot at State in the Region meet next Saturday, the 22nd at Augusta Prep. Anyone placing in the top 10 earns the chance to compete at state on the 29th.
