Big picture

Congratulations to GP's Cross Country Team!

Our runners did amazing

5/6th girls AND 5/6th boys took 1st!

7/8th girls didn't have a team, but we had 3 girls running. Brooklyn G placed 10th overall and Kayla Faulk placed 11th, Cassie Palmer finished 72nd!

7/8th boys...got 2nd. HOWEVER!! They originally tied for first, but in XC if there is a tie (determined by the place of your first five runners), the 6th runners place breaks it. So we were so close to first:)

We are so proud of them. Check out the results: https://azmsxc.com/results/
