Lions Boys and Girls Take Top Honors at Skyline Classic!

Friday, September 18 2015

Despite thunderstorms delaying the meet's start, our Lions prevailed and took first place in both the Boys and Girls varsity races. This was the inaugural run for the Wendell Phillips Skyline Classic, and the course at 39th Street beach did not disappoint.

With breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline as our backdrop, the boys took 2nd (Kevin Zhagui), 3rd (Erick Torres), 4th (Cielo Oviedo), 5th (Ross Myren), and 6th place. Scoring 21 points, the Boy Lions beat the next nearest team by 57 points.

The Lady Lions pulled off a near perfect score of 16 points taking 1st through 4th, and 6th place - in this order: Alyssa Hui, Ruby Flores, Dana Randall, Clair Considine (a freshman!), and Ester Perez.

Just as impressive we had, numerous runners complete their first ever cross country race! Congratulations to those runners, for fearlessly completing the 3-mile course!
