Cross Country is Running Along
Congratulations to the Coleman's Cross Country Team for their fine performance at the Robinson Invitational early last week.  All runners ran strong and had excellent times.  8th grade girls, Dina Tuong placed 14th and Kamy Nguyen placed 10th.  8th grade boys, Isaiah Brown placed 18th and Matthew Ritter came in 11th. 

On Saturday, Sept. 13th, the Coleman Cross Country Team traveled to Trinity High School to participate in the Wild Wind Race.  Our runners experienced quite a different course this time by running in a tunnel pass, crossing a creek , and finishing in the track stadium full of yelling spectators.  The course was cumulatively challenging.  All runners decreased their race times.
