Cross Country

On Sat the IS Cross Country Teams finished up an amazing season with their final meet at the TN State Middle School Championship.  This was the hardest and most competitive meet these athletes have run all season.  On the girls side there were 308 runners on the line when the gun sounded and Abagale Hay had an outstanding race with a time of 15:45 on the 2 mile course.

The boys lined up with 322 other runners from all across the state and each one of them ran their hearts out.  Mason Woodrick just edged out Luke Page with a time of 13:12.63 with Luke’s time of 13:12.86.  Beckham Sonnabend was just behind them with a time of 13:45.20. Congratulations to these students!

7th and 8th grade Social Studies classes will participate in the first ever State of Tennessee Student Mock Election this coming Monday, October 24th. Our Election results will be reported to the Tennessee Secretary of State’s Office along with other participating schools in the State.
