Junior Brad Amy paced three Saegertown Cross Country runners at the PIAA State Championships on Nov. 1 in Hershey, Pa. The race took place at Parkview, which used to be a golf course.  Amy finished 24th overall. Senior Brendon Barclay and freshman Beka McClymonds also had good showings at States placing 57th and 59th respectively. “It felt amazing beating my previous time from last year at states, but I felt terrible knowing that I would never get to race with Brendon and the other seniors again,” said Amy.

The Cross Country team held their banquet November 11 at Pleasant View Alliance Church. Junior Garrett Johnston said, “I really appreciated what the coaches had to say about the team and our season.” The season may not have ended on the high of last year’s state championship, but the team will still carry its seven year 58-0 undefeated Region 3 record into next year.
