Boys Junior High Cross Country, Girls Junior High Cross Country · Eagles JH XC teams rise to new Heights and Gain New Experiences!

Both JH Girls and Boys had team members that gained a new awesome experience participating in the JH race at the Nike Desert Twilight XC Festival in Casa Grande Friday night among 6,900 athletes and a total of 24 races (both HS and JH/MS) coming from 10 states!

Saturday morning we drove up to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott for the Trinity Mile High Invitational where most of the JH Girls and Boys ran on a beautiful course in cooler weather at 60 degrees F and at an elevation of 5,400 ft (1,600m)!

The girls team placed 3rd overall with Charlotte Shirley finishing in 2nd place and Jackie Marques finishing in 11th.

The boys team placed 2nd overall narrowly falling behind ALA Queen Creek’s boys team although Lucas Witcher handily won the race and Nicks Nielsen came in 2nd place overall!
