The boys were recognized for their state placings: Clayton Young - individual state champion, Mack Morrison - individual state runner-up, Nafe Richardson(4th), Austin West (6th), and Derk Day (8th), Daniel Keller (13th), and Kevin Judd (17th). They were also recognized for setting a State Course Record of 78:01; a record by 91 seconds over the record our Cavemen set last year.

Coach Mostert then unveiled the new State Championship banner.

The athletes on the J.V. squads were also recognized for the the hard work and effort they had put into the season. We are grateful for all the parents, administration, faculty, community members, and student body who support our team. I have never seen as many students in our school interested in how our team is doing as there have been this year, and I hope it only helps build our program even more.
