The Middle School Cross Country team competed in the charter school championship meet last Saturday, and the kids ran remarkably well. Sixth grader Tori Starace finished 3rd overall, eighth grader Lyla Kramer finished 6th, and eighth grader Madelyn Zeller finished 9th. The team is coached by Mr. Green and Mr. O’Brien. All runners improved their 4K times by nearly 3 minutes in the championship race. Those improved times, along with Lia Simone Valentine finishing 12th overall in her very first 4K meet, helped put their team into position to beat out DCI and win second place to bring home a runner-up trophy. Five runners won individual medals for their races: sixth grader Sienna Kepner, seventh grader Avery Park, and sixth grader Liam Pittard, as well as Tori Starace and Lyla Kramer. Go Lions!
