There is no school this Friday.

The cross country teams fought hard in the SMAC Conference Meet this past Saturday at Lakeview’s Riverside Elementary Course. Both teams were projected to finish in the lower half of the conference and did better than expected with the girls finishing 5th and the boys 4th in their respective races. Earning all conference honors were Joy Hart with a 9th place finish and Ella Schnell with 3rd. Joe Meyers also was all conference with his runner-up finish. Lilly Daniels and Bella Ford ran season bests while Joy Hart, Georgia Hill, Kinsey Skjold, Myles Baker, Joss Brent, Simon Ford, Gryffin Hurley, Grant Kahler, Kaleb Miller and Gavin Roznac all had lifetime bests. They compete again 5 miles away at Portage West Middle School next Saturday for the Regional meet and a chance to go to the state finals. Go Knights!
