Nathan Pontious continues to progress throughout the season and appears to be in more control of his pace this year. His 17:10 tenth place finish is proof of that. The boys and girls teams continue to work hard and need to pick it up a bit, in order to be more competitive against the regional competitors. I would like to see the girls maintain a fourth place position in their region, and with time, patience, and determination, they can do it. The next cross country meet will be Junior Varsity at Pathfinder Park on Tuesday, September 10th and both Varsity/JV at Air Academy on Saturday, September 14th.
