The cross country team rocked it at regions this Monday, and they took 2nd losing only by 3 points, which is so close for cross country! 7 of our 8 kids that ran varsity placed in the top 20. The girls place 4th, with 3 in the top 20. These kids worked so hard this year and did amazing!
Senior cross country runner Tayin Wallace has been selected as a Maple Mountain Student Athlete "Prep of the Week" for his outstanding performances this year. Tayin has consistently been running in the number one position. His high finish at the region cross country championships led the boys team to a high team finish this past week.

Cross country is a sport that keeps on running. Members of the cross country team say that running is fun and gets you into shape but the best part is the team. The team is like a family because everyone is close, and there is a sense of unity. Most recruits join to see what all the hype is about or because a friend is on the team. They then end up getting hooked. When we asked the team what they would say to someone who wants to join, most responses mentioned how the people on the team are fun, and it feels rewarding after the races.
Cross Country runner Christy Wilkinson has been named this week's "Prep Athlete of the Week." Christy was selected because of her outstanding and consistent performances as a varsity runner on the girl's cross country team. Christy's team is one of the favorites for honors at region and state in the next several weeks. Congratulations Christy and good luck to you and the team!
