Think about joining the team that supports our teams! GO SAINTS!
The Saints cross country team had an early season test on one of the toughest courses in the state at Woodberry Forest. A second visit to the course for the state championship would confirm the young Saints team had grown to fear no one during the season. Six-time defending champion Bishop O'Connell and two very strong LIS teams in Trinity and Collegiate all planned to make a run for the title. But this cold, windy fall day with the stunning backdrop of the Woodberry campus would belong to the Saints. Collegiate finished third with 128 points, Bishop O'Connell finished second with 99 points, and the Saints won the 2013 State Championship with 76 points (low score wins)! Receiving All State honors, Ann Nicholson finished 1st for the Saints, 3rd overall, Izzy LeBay finished 2nd for the Saints and Ryley Ogden finished 3rd for the Saints. All of the girls ran strong races, allowing our depth and talent to combine for the exciting outcome. Congratulations Saints Cross Country!
