Our Boy’s and Girl’s Cross Country team kicked off their season with an 2nd and 3rd placement. Our top runners on the Boy’s side were Dylan Jurski (12th place), Noah Grant (16th place), David Shuey (18th place), Jack Rogers (19th Place) and Nick Grant (23 Place) out of the other 137  athletes running. Those five combined for a overall second place finish and only a total of six points out of first. On our Girl’s side our top runners were Julia Deyoung (4th place), Maddie Hull(9th place), Madison Scanlon(10th place), Aaliyah Gordon(31st place), and Arielle Ellis(32nd place). Our top five girls combined for a overall third place finish. Good Job Knights.

While talking to Dylan about his excitement for the season ahead he said,  ” We’re going to be really good this season. That second place showing was without our top runner in Blake Stanford…. We’re going to shock some people this year.”
