Both the girls and boys cross country teams placed first at district meet today at Pebble Creek Golf Course. This was the first time in school history that a cross country team won the district meet.

For the girls, senior co-captain Julia DeYoung lead the Knights with a 2nd place finish in 19:34.80, with senior co-captain Madison Hull not far behind in fifth with 20:08.40. Also in the top fifteen were seniors Madison Scanlan (9th in 20:57.60) and Arielle Ellis (14th in 21:46).

The boys were lead by Junior Jack Rogers, who won the district meet in 16:48.70. Senior Fredrick Stanford placed 4th in 17:16.50, and juniors Manuel Tejeda and Wade Fitzgerald placed 6th (17:26) and 7th (17:33.40), respectively.

Because of their high finish, both the girls and the boys cross country team will go on to compete in the 3A Region 3 meet. The meet will be held next Saturday, November 2nd, at Dover Trails, and will determine whether the teams move on to the state meet in Tallahassee.
