“I was proud for how our team did overall, and how we accomplished so much during the past weeks,” senior Eliza Witherspoon said.
While the women’s side did great, the men’s also had spectacular races. Noah Graham ran in four events: 4x8m, 800m, 1600m, and the 3200m. He placed second, second, first, first in the events. Robinson placed third in the 3200m.
Senior Andrew Robinson said “We placed third overall, even with four boys. It was a great day.”
Meanwhile, Tennis players Cam Wilson and Liam Baer were playing a spectacular game at the State playoffs.
“Although we lost, it was a great experience,” senior Cam Wilson said.
Good Job to all the State finalists!
