Off & Running .... St. John Cross Country Students Start the Season Strong!
This past Saturday, students from SJS Cross Country kicked off the XC season in strong style at the First Annual Sacred Heart Invitational in Groton at Bluff Point. The meet was broken down into two races - one for girls and one for boys - 1.6 miles each.
The boys race kicked off first at 9am, followed by the girls at 9.30am. SJS boys started the season on a high note with our top placed boy placing 10th out of approximately 60 runners. Next came the girls race, competing equally strong with our top placed girl finishing in 13th place out of approximately 50 girl athletes.
We are so proud of all of our XC athletes and look forward to a wonderful season and wish them well. We thank too our coaches - we are so grateful to you for your dedication and time! The next XC meet is this Tuesday, September 18, around the corner at Old Saybrook Middle School at 3.45pm. Stop by to cheer on our SJS XC athletes! For a complete XC schedule, see here
