On Tuesday, the CCS Middle School Cross Country team finished their season at the HAPS District Cross Country Championships. With 11 schools competing at the meet, and a tough course that featured a long gradual hill climb, the Warriors excelled. Overall, the boys team finished in 4th place, and the girls team finished in 6th place. The team was led by top finishers Michael Slabic for the boys and Gillian Storey for the girls. The cross country team has trained for this race through the Houston summer heat and six invitational races. Their dedication paid off in spectacular fashion with 13 of the 14 runners finishing their season by breaking their own personal racing records. For now, the team will spend the winter playing other sports, but runners always know that crossing the finish line is the first step towards the start of the next race. Track season is just a few months away!
