They did it! For the first time in a decade Loy Norrix is taking a boy and a girl to the state finals for cross country. Ella Schnell will be going by virtue of her 7th place finish at the regional meet Saturday. Joe Meyers will also be competing at the Michigan International Speedway due to being our regional champion. Both runners finished one place better than projected and fought hard throughout the race. Ella and Joe improved their position over the last mile of the 5k race to earn their regional standing. As a team, the boys finished 12th and girls 9th out of 15 complete teams. Notable performances were also put in by Gavin Roznac dropping nearly 2 minutes on his best time, and LIlly Daniels and Kinsey Skjold for dropping almost a minute off their season bests and overall bests respectively. Overall, it was a great finish to a wonderful season.

Last week your esports teams were both in action. First up were the Overwatch team, going against a tough opponent from Xavier High School in New York City, the Cavalry’s toughest opponent to date. Each match was intense, with swings going both ways as neither team gave an inch without a tough fight. Both games went into overtime, but the Cavalry’s opponents were too much to overcome. The Super Smash Brothers Ultimate team was also in action on Thursday against Midland High School, la rematch of the Knights’ only loss to date. The Knights crushed them, including senior Gabe Vroman avenging his previous loss to Midland with a 3-0 sweep of his game. The Overwatch team will again be in action this Tuesday and Thursday at 4:00 against a tough Charlotte High School team on Tuesday and a tougher challenge Wednesday from Lebanon High School in Lebanon, PA. To watch the matches, go to and search for Loy Norrix. Good luck Knights!
