Varsity Cross Country States Recap—Men’s Team Are State Champs!

November 8, 2016 Posted in: Athletics Tags: ,

Head Coach Ken Key uses the word “hungry” as the characteristic that enabled the Varsity Men’s Cross Country team to do what they did all season, particularly at the state meet that took place on Saturday, November 5, at Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee, Florida.

Since the beginning, the Men’s Cross Country team had their eyes set on a state championship, and they accomplished their goal. They finished first in the state as a team in Class 1A, while lone senior Patrick Sastre led the way all season and ended up finishing 9th in the state.

Since the summer began, both the men’s and ladies’ team dedicated their early mornings, late evenings, and Saturdays to train and prepare for this season. The hard work continued through the fall up until the State meet.

It was a well-deserved accomplishment from a close and dedicated group. The team looks forward to the future of the program as they continue to grow and hope to make another run next year at States.
