CROSS COUNTRY DOES IT AGAIN; Blazers Dominate Regionals at Hillcrest

CROSS COUNTRY DOES IT AGAIN; Blazers Dominate Regionals at Hillcrest

LIam Kemp , co-managing editor

Your very own blazers won again at Hill Creast Highschool last night, with both girls and boys winning the region. out of 20 all-region spots, GMC had 14 runners’ place, which is by far more then any other school could of dreamed of.

This win further instates a long standing tradition of GMC dominating the region in cross country, with this being the 4th consecutive title that GMC has won.

Luke Jennings, who was nominated with an all region spot, had this to say about the team’s success: “there is few things better then being able to win at something year after year, but it wouldn’t have been possible without the great coaches and team spirit we have.” Luke couldn’t have said it any better. While we have great talent year after year, it would be at waste if it weren’t for our coaches instocking a winning culture at this school.

The following are the people who took home honors for this year’s all region spots:

Girls Region Runner of the Year:

  • Sophia DiPasque

  • Elizabeth Markwell
