On Tuesday, August 28, Spartan Cross Country kicked off its season with a meet against Hill Murray, Cretin Derham Hall, and Nova Classical Academy. It was a great outing for both the girls' and boys' team who finished first and second, respectively. The girls' were led by junior Maddy Breton who was the overall winner of the race (by almost a full minute). The team also saw excellent running by senior Sammy Ries who broke the first-second place tie-breaker with a gutsy effort at the end of the race. On the boys' side, senior captain Jonah Spencer led the charge for SPA, and as a whole, the boys performed well.
With a solid first meet under their belt, the Spartans will look to build on the success at next week's meet at Bassett Creek Park in Crystal, MN. Go SPA!
