A Gut-check Week

What a positive week for the Hamilton Broncs!
On Wednesday, September 15th, both boys and girls teams swept the Frenchtown Invitational! The boys scored a near perfect 17 points, placing 1,2,3,5 and 6. This picture was the start of the race...these five boys held these positions for the next three miles:)
The girls placed 2,3,4,5 and 8. I absolutely love how our kids are grouping up. In fact, our ladies took first at the Ronan Invite on Saturday, a much bigger meet. They placed 11, 12, 13, 14 and 16 to beat Hellgate in a tie breaker. I love how the tie breaker works in cross country. The teams' whose number 6 places higher secures the win. In our case that was Tess (pictured below). I was proud of her competitiveness at the end of the race as she passed two Corvallis girls. Way to go Ladies!

Tough week ahead of us with the smoke so thick here in the valley. We're hoping for some reprieve so our kids can get some important work outs in. We have a ways to go to win those trophies we have our sights set on...but a lot of promise none the less.Go Broncs!!
