The 8th grade girl XC team competed against Keller and Southlake schools in Southlake on September 30th for their first 2 mile race.
They came prepared to compete!! Mallory Sherrer led the girls, running a 11:46 with a second place finish. Right behind her in 4th and 5th place were Claire Pafford and Landry Sherrer. The outstanding finish of Ava Beaty and Rachel Arrington in 11th and 12th place helped propel the team to victory. Annie Reeder helped to push these girls with a 16th place finish. Ellyse Olmstead, Paige Slater, and Ellie Dalton also had great races proving that teamwork makes the dream work, even in a somewhat individual sport. No coach could say enough about the work ethic and heart that this group displays every meet. They look forward to defending their titles next week in Keller.
