    CROSS COUNTRY HEADS TO STATE!

    WHO IS GOING TO STATE??... LCA CROSS COUNTRY TEAM IS!

    Congratulations to both the Varsity Boys and Girls Cross Country teams that competed last Friday at Regionals, and are now on their way to State competition!!  Our girls took 3rd place over all and our boys took 4th place!

    The Cross Country Boys team has been waiting to give the Gatorade bath to Coach Chip Kiel for the last couple of meets.  They held off until the ultimate moment when both the boys and the girls made it to State!  Coach Chip has inspired and pushed our runners this year..."run fast, finish strong"...our runners hear that every time they run and they did it!  We appreciate his leading by example and for his lovely wife, Stephanie, helping him with all of the details.
