Trojan Cross Country

Thank You!

Cross Country athletes and parents,

Athletes -We want to extend a huge Thank Youfor a great season. We feel truly blessed to have so many awesome kids in our program. Your dedication and work ethic is shown by attending practice, meets and working with our fundraisers all while attending school and keeping up academically. Thanks for participating and we look forward to next year.

Parents – Your support has been second to none. We are so appreciative of the time and effort you have given throughout the year. From the summer running and trip to Wild Water West to the Turkey Trot fundraiser and team bonding activity, thank you. Also a big thank you to the Thier’s and all the parents and athletes for their work organizing the Haunted House. It was phenomenal. These team building activities solidify our team spirit and camaraderie.

Congratulations to Adam Koller for advancing to the state cross country meet. Your dedication and hard work have been an inspiration for all of us. GOOD LUCK this Saturday.

GO TROJANS!!!

Summer Running

Many student athletes have been participating in our summer runs that took place on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Worthington High School.  On the last day of running, a group of those hard workers ran the trails at Tuthill Park in Sioux Falls.  Following their run, athletes spent the afternoon celebrating their hard work and cooling off at Wild Water West!  Not pictured are several other hard-working student athletes that could not make it.  Thank you athletes for your hard work and dedication this summer!
