On the cold blustery Saturday morning of November 1, the Sherwood Christian Academy Varsity Boys and Girls Cross Country Teams ran in the GICAA State Cross Country Meet at the Industrial Children’s Home in Macon. The team included a group of seven boys and four girls running a 5K race against teams from Covenant, Westminister, Praise Academy, Central Fellowship and Skipstone.
Samantha Pappas won the girls race while Joshua Kendrick finished fifth and Ryan Canidate finished eighth in the boys race. The guys finished runner-up in state to Covenant Academy and ahead of Westminister, Central Fellowship, and Praise Academy. Great way to finish the season Eagles!!!
Sherwood has two All-State runners, Joshua Kendrick and Samantha Pappas, and almost had three as Ryan Canidate finished in 8th place just one spot short of making the All-State Team. So proud of everyone’s efforts this year, great way to finish the season Eagles!!!
The team was coached by Coach Mark Meager and Coach Lakisha Elder. Thank you both for your efforts and sacrifice to teach these athletes how to compete with excellence while honoring the Lord with their talents.
