The rain didn’t dampen ‘Topper spirits at Saturday’s New Mexico Cross Country Championship, although it did make the course a lot less sandy than usual.
Our Boys took 3rd place behind Albuquerque Academy and Kirtland Central. Eighth-grader Rafael Sanchez took 4th overall to lead the ‘Toppers – a remarkable performance for so young a runner!
Our Girls took 2nd place, only six points behind Albuquerque Academy. Junior Zoe Hemez was State Individual Runner-up and eighth-grader Lidia Appell finished in fifth place to also take All-State honors.
