The boys’ and girls’ varsity cross country teams ran in the GICAA state cross country meet in Macon on Saturday. Each team came into the meet with strong region finishes a week ago.
The girls’ team finished 2nd overall by 5 points to a talented Westminster Christian Academy team. Congratulations to 8th grader Joy Kendrick for finishing 1st and earning the title of individual state champion! Her sister Anna Kendrick finished in 4th place to earn all-state honors! Other teammates competing included Victoria Vega, Alexis Kelley, Olivia Williams, Catherine Kendrick, and Caroline Mathis. Today’s 2nd place team finish mirrors last year’s runner-up title for the team which is an incredible accomplishment. With no seniors on the roster, next year is looking very promising!
The boys’ team finished 4th overall just 6 points out of 2nd place. Freshman Collin Phillips finished in 7th place to earn all-state honors! Other teammates competing included Jordan Roberts, Nathaniel Sancinto, Nicolo Galiano, Nathan Roberts, Carter Ricker, and Ethan Kelley. Like the girls’ team, there are no seniors on the roster so next season should be great!
