The fall season has officially come to a close with the Awards Ceremony at the high school. This was the second season in the Northern Indiana Conference. I wanted to share with all of you a brief wrap up of our fall seasons.


Boys and Girls Cross Country teams finished their seasons with strong showings in the Sectional. We had two boys qualify for the regional, Jack Hochstetler and Rheese Adamson, and one girl also qualified for the regional, Claire Heying. As the season moved along, we were able to set personal records in several matches.
