"In my eight years of coaching cross country, this is the most talented group of runners I've coached,” said Tony Marino, SMS cross country coach. “You don't get a group of runners like this too often."


There were nine schools in attendance competing at the meet. Skyview Middle School finished first with a team score of 27.


Three individual team members placed in the top 10 – Maddy Blazo, 13, eighth grader - second place; Bryesen Roman, 13, eighth grader - fourth place; and Katherine Palmer, 14, eighth grader - seventh place.


"Everyone worked together as a team, and it showed when we won the championship,” shared Bryesen Roman. “It was a special season,” added Coach Marino.
