STATE XC CHAMPIONSHIPS:GREAT FINISH TO THE SEASON!

XC Team at The State Championships

Spectators shivered in the 40 degree rainy weather as they anxiously waited at the finish line to see who would cross first. It was the final stretch of the race, and the runners used every drop of energy they had left to cross the finish line.

The MJMS cross country team qualified for the state championships in Knoxville, Tennessee. The team did amazing, with the previously undefeated boys placing second, and the girls placing seventh. This was outstanding considering the fact that there were over thirty teams competing in the competition. 

Two of the runners placed in the top twenty for their races. 6th grader Morgan Bissonnette finished 16th place, and 8th grader Joseph Abbott finished 16th as well. 

As I said the day was very rainy and cold. (That is why I had no pictures of the boy’s race) 7th grader Kayla Smith stated that, “Most people can’t even run two miles, let alone on a very hilly, slippery, freezing cold course”

Overall, this team has done an outstanding job this year , and we hope that next year will bring a successful season as well.
