Yesterday the cross country teams competed in the league championship which was held at Brunswick Jr. High. The Brunswick girls put together a total team effort as they out-paced all other teams to win the championship.  Micaela Ashby charged to the front and dominated the race of 45 girls, as she crossed the finish line alone and picked up the first place award.  Following Micaela and winning top 10 awards were Caitlin Kelly 5th, Desiree Tanner 6th, Alyssa Wyman 9th, and Elena Palmer 10th.  Gia Guernelli and Addie Dolley rounded out the scoring.  61 boys toed the line as the sky opened up with a torrential down pour.  The boys team easily out-paced all other teams as they placed 7 runners in the top ten positions.  Cameron Ashby led all boys from the start and never gave up the lead as he sprinted to the league championship award.   Cameron and Micaela became the first siblings to ever share the cross country championship titles.  Will Shaughnessy had an outstanding race as he picked up the 2nd place award.  Also winning awards were Daniel Lyons 4th, Erik Linseisen 5th, Hunter Parker 6th, Tyler Patterson 8th, Andrew Chingos 9th, and Nick DaRosa 11th.  One course record was broken as Erik Linseisen set a new 6th grade course record cutting 8 seconds off the previous time.  Today is a recovery day, the next cross country practice will be Thursday, rain or shine.

We invite you to come to the first meeting of the Climate Club (featuring yummy snacks) on tomorrow morning, October 23rd in Room 310 (Mr. Seheult’s room). The meeting will start at 7:10 a.m. and go until the walker bell. For more information, please contact Mr. Seheult.

Calling all artists who are good at painting on canvas!

You must be able to work on this after school, or during lunch or a study hall with teacher approval. You must submit a sketch or a plan that follows some specific guidelines. Please see Mrs. Berry-Palm or Ms. Bucknam for more information. A limited number or artists will be chosen for this project.

Yesterday, playing arena-style flag football in the gym, the Seahawks and the Patriots battled to another 6-all tie. Scoring for the Seahawks was Gavin DePalmer on a QB keeper and scoring for the Patriots was Evan Killfoil on a QB keeper. Playing strong defensively for the Seahawks were Drew DeSantis, J.D. Santiago, and Emma Lind. Defensive stand-outs for the Patriots included Spencer Marquis, Josh Poulin, and Owen Stoddard. This is the third “tie” in as any meetings for these two teams. Flag football players should note that the next flag football game between the 49ers and the Seahawks, is still scheduled for this Thursday, but players should listen to announcements on Thursday to see if the game is postponed or not.

The 8th grade boys soccer team tied Mt. Ararat 1-1. The Huskies first goal was from Noah Greene, off a sweet cross from Emmet Taub.  Man of the match was Kian Murray for running the back neat and tidy.  Seamus Mccarthy and Mac Callahan played well defensively.

The 7th grade boys soccer team were victorious over Mt. Ararat 2-1.  Coenradt Taylor and Liam Hemberger played well in the net.  Josh Musica, and Everett Horch controlled the front and Connor Ney and Josh Guptill kept the Ararat boys at bay.
