If the Avengers were Olympians...

"More than once, coaching the varsity boys has felt like trying to corral the Avengers," Coach Sponsler said. "They're all so different from one another and yet, when they work together, they're capable of greatness."

Western Middle School XC update

Last night the western middle school XC teams did a great job. Gezaghen Starr won the boys 6th grade race followed in by his teammate Quinn Natschke who finished second overall in the girls race. Both the 6th grade boys and girls ran together and as a combined team beat Albion, Stockbridge, Leslie and albion.
Madison Natschke, Kazune Nakashima, Noel Nagy and Sophie Debacker led the girls team into a first place finish with a score of 15 points to leslies 28. Madison was 1st, Kazune 2nd, Noel was 3rd and Sophie was 8th. All the girls did a really nice job of working together to win the race.
Lake Buseth had a hottly contested finish as a Stockbridge runner dove over the line and the stater gave the first place finish to Stockbridge. If you want to see Lake go after this kid come to our home meet on Thursday. Jared Clark, trey Palmer, Bode Buseth, and Brandon Miller all ran very well, but despite their efforts the boys still placed 2nd behind stockbridge.
Teachers, staff, and students if you have time on Thursday afternoon please come out and watch the runners on their home turf starting at 4:30.

BikeSnobNYC's Guide to Cyclocross

For a solid description of the sport of cyclo cross, check out this guy's posting, with photos, in Bicycling Magazine. Klunker-Cross, of course, won't exactly fit BikeSnobNYC's description, but the key elements are there. We don't care what kind of bike you ride, as long as it has two wheels and you're pedaling. Also, we have a different approach to nutrition.
