Congratulations to the girls’ cross country team for making it to the regional meet! The district meet was held at King on Monday, Oct. 22. Eight schools from the district were present: King, Gaither, Robinson, Brandon, Lennard, Chamberlain, Tampa Bay Tech, and Freedom.

The girls placed fourth in the district, taking the last seat on the ticket to regionals. They have kept alive the streak of attending the regional meet for 17 years now.

The following girls comprised the team that ran at the district meet:

  • Michelle Jayaraj (Captain)
  • Isha Harshe
  • Skylar Detjen
  • Kourtney Warren
  • Amulya Kompella
  • Kira Garcia
  • Amy Pham
  • Faith Twinamaani

 

Jayaraj took eleventh place at the meet, placing in the Top 15 girls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday was also senior night for the cross country team. All the seniors from all the present teams were recognized before their teammates. The seniors on the girls team were Twinamaani, Harshe, and Detjen (from left to right).

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the boys’ side, the seniors were Justice Goff and Issay Barry.

Their fellow teammates worked together to create posters to honor the seniors and wrote heartwarming messages on the back.

Both the boys and the girls put forth great efforts at the district race.

The regional meet will be at Port Charlotte and will be on Saturday, Nov. 3 in the morning.

Good Luck Girls!
