This Year's First Cross Country Meet

September 22, 2017

Go Phins! What better way to show school spirit than by supporting our sports teams? The first sport event of the year happened on September 19, 2017, on a Tuesday, at Marin Paradise Park. The San Francisco Day School cross country team raced against Marin Country Day School and Brandeis. The first place runners for both boys and girls were both from MCDS. Leighton M., an eighth grader, came in first for the boys race by a lot, passing Dewie E. only when he stumbled and had to be taken out of the race for an injured ankle. June E., a seventh grader from MCDS, won first place for the girls race. The first place runner from SF Day was an eighth grader, Luke D., who won fourth place overall. The first place runner for the SF Day girls was Pippa S., and she won sixth place. All in all, the MCDS cross country team won the meet, but we’re excited to see the SF Day team grow as the season progresses!
