Congratulations to the Cross Country Team
We had 18 girls and boys competing in this past Tuesday's Harker Cross Country Invitational. There were at least 15 different schools represented and nearly 1000 runners!  Our students were awesome and they had a great time which was evident with all the smiles, hand slapping, and cheering from those getting to race and those who finished.

Saint Andrew's had (3) finishers in the top 10 and (15) finishers who gave their best and almost everyone had a P.R. (personal record). The distance was 1.45 miles.
