Still struggling through some injuries on the varsity team, the girls battled it out for a 19th place finish. The boys’ team had yet another great outing earning themselves and amazing 7th place team finish! Great job runners! We hope to see everyone out at the school farm tomorrow for our only home meet and Sports Rally against WV/WN/LL!
