Spartan Cross Country

The Spartan Cross Country team is kicking off the season on Saturday at the Shiloh Saints Invitational in Springdale. We have runners competing in 4 different divisions this season: Girls Varsity, Boys Varsity, Girls Junior High, and Boys Junior High. Our Boys Team is the defending 1A State Champs, and our Girls Team finished third at the State Meet last year. Coach Noah Stockton is the new Head Coach for Cross Country. Coach Stockton helped coach the Spartan Track & Field Team (Boys & Girls) in the spring. He also ran Cross Country at Friends University in Wichita, Kansas and looks to coach Track & Field again in the Spring. If anyone in 7th-12th grade is interested in running Cross Country this season, it’s not too late. Email Coach Stockton at nstockton@responsiveedar.com if you are interested.

We wish the Spartan Cross Country Teams well this weekend and throughout the season!

Library Needs
Hey Spartan Families! As summer comes to an end we know you will be putting away all those things that were used for summer activities. We have a way to recycle pool noodles that you may be getting rid of as you close down the pool for this year. Mrs. DeRose is using pool noodles to help keep the fiction section shelves looking nice. So bring those pool noodles to help our Spartan Library
