In cross county, the Eagles traveled down to I-25 yesterday to take on the Knights of Castle Rock Middle School. Running on a tough wooded course, the Eagles clawed their way to a decisive victory. The 8th grade boys won by 21 points, scoring in 10 of the top 15 places. The 8th grade girls also won their race, beating Castle Rock by 26 points, and scoring in 10 of the top 15 places as well. There was no one outstanding performance in 8th grade, it was truly a team effort, as all of the kids stayed together and pushed each other to exceptionally fast times.
In the 7th grade races, the 7th grade boys had their first victory of the young season, beating the Knights by 29 points. After seeing Castle Rock take the top two spots, the Eagles finished in the next 10 spots, which is an impressive of a performance by a seventh grade team the coaching staff has seen in a long time! The 7th grade girls were not too shabby either, winning their first race of the year race handily by 14 points. Sydney Compoz came in first overall for the second week in a row, followed by 8 teammates in the top 15.
It was an magnificent performance for the Eagles, as they won the overall by 90 points! The Eagles race again next week at Rocky Heights, where they hope to continue with their undefeated season.
