Knights Cross Country – State Bound!!
The Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School cross country teams qualified for the AHSAA State Championships next week in Oakville, placing in the top three at the AHSAA Sectionals held at Gateway Park on Thursday afternoon.
The girls qualified as a team for the first time since 2009 for the AHSAA State Championships, finishing third in the section behind Bayside Academy and T.R. Miller. Senior Katherine Terino was the top finisher for the Knights, crossing the line fourth overall.
Meanwhile, the Montgomery Catholic boys team made history by winning their third consecutive section championship – the first time the feat was accomplished in the section in Class 3A. The Knights, who had been ranked second most of the year in Class 3A, outran the team holding the top ranking for much of the season, Cottage Hill, for the championship.
