NVHAA Cross Country Honors The NVHAA XC Team has had an outstanding season this year! Doubling in size, with teams both in the East and West of the Northern Virginia area, the runners have consistently raced well and developed strong Christian character as well as competitiveness. One of NVHAA's female high school runners, Libby Quann, placed 1st at the 9th Annual Spire Invitational on October 18, 2018. In addition to the win, she also broke the course record of 19:20 by finishing the race in 19:03. The NVHAA Centurion girls have worked hard this season and developed into a strong cross country team, placing 1st overall at the Spire Invitational. Congratulations Centurion Runners and Coaches!

Bloomington Bobcats The Bloomington Bobcat Boys XC team won the ICSAA state Championship this past weekend. It was very exciting and the boys worked very hard for it. The course was a tough one on a hot day with rolling wooded paths that were wet from the previous day's rain. It also had a tough steep hill they had to climb to get out of the woods. Each boy worked very hard during the race to do their part. Going into the awards was suspenseful, So when they announced that they had won by 1 point, the celebration was on! All 6 of our runners were in the top 20 and 4 of them were in the top 10! They sure earned that trophy! The girl's team were light on numbers but 2 awesome Middle school runners ran up to help us complete a team. All the girls ran hard on this tough course and as a team and came in 3rd. They had 3 girls in the top 20 which was very exciting.

IHS Lions Fourth Straight Win for IHS’s Rob Mitchell Rob Mitchell began the season with a fourth place finish, but he has not settled for less than first since then. Last Monday, Mitchell was back at Swope Park for the EA Markey Invitational, running a 2.2 mile course this time. IHS’s Mitchell, Dominique Bynum from Central AE, and Kamal Adam from East HS pulled ahead of the other runners early in the race. The three developed a comfortable rapport over the first couple of miles, but as the finish line came into sight, Kamal Adam initiated a challenge. Mitchell and Bynum responded, and the spectators cheered encouragingly, as the three competitors tested their limits by sprinting the last stretch of the race. Mitchell, only inches in front of Bynum, crossed the line with a time of 13:44. They were followed by Adam who finished a second later for third place.
