SLA Cross Country Sends Three Runners to State Meet!

Congratulations to the SLA Cross Country team on an outstanding season! At the District 12 meet on Thursday, the SLA boys scored 4th overall as a team against Public and Catholic League schools, showing an extraordinary effort in their first year in the AA division composed of larger and typically faster schools. In addition, three runners placed high enough individually to earn spots at the state cross country meet in Hershey, PA on November 1: Juniors Desmond O'Donovan and Javier Peraza, and senior Thomas Jeffcoat. The entire team ran an exceptional race, contributing collectively to the outstanding 4th place finish.

The SLA girls also ran a strong race, despite the appearance of some nasty weather at the start of their race. We are incredibly proud of the strong effort and enthusiasm demonstrated by the cross country team this year, the largest cross country team at SLA to date!​
