ONE TO REMEMBER
The FEAST Patriots fought hard this 2018 cross-country season and finished strong. The FEAST Patriots last cross-country meet was the Texas Homeschool State Cross-Country Championship and they did not disappoint. Varsity boys placed second with Joshua Powers (12th) leading them. The Varsity girls, led by Emma Heslop (1st) and Grace White (2nd), took home gold, with all seven girls placing in the top 20! JV boys, led by Keagan Bogart (3rd), had an outstanding performance. They too took home the gold. JV girls were able to grab themselves the first-place trophy as well with all 5 girls placing in the top 20! (Sound familiar?) The 2018 high school teams did amazing and finished the season strong.
The middle school teams were a force to be reckoned with! The MS division 1 boys’ team placed 3rd, with Paul Shane (2nd) leading the team. The girl’s division 1 team was led by Claire Bettencourt, who placed third, and the team placed first. The division two teams had amazing performance. The boys were led by Nune Cantu, who placed 8th. The boys’ team placed 3rd. The division two girls team placed 1st, led by Victoria Richardson placing 2nd overall.
The Texas Homeschool State Championship was a hit among the FEAST Patriots with all eight teams placing in the top 3! This would not be possible without Coach Jones, who tirelessly pours into the program. Thank-you Coach for your hard work and dedication. We also want to recognize this year’s captains, who led our team well, Shaun Booth (boys captain), Keagan Bogart (boys co-captain), Grace White (girls captain), and KayCee Keller (girls co-captain). Finally, we would like to wish our seniors Maggie Nork, Shaun Boothe, Mark Braymer, Jotham Richter, Skylar Pomager, and Grace White the best of luck as they go on to do BIG things! We can’t wait to see what God has planned for each of you!
The cross-country team is now looking forward to watching the Girls Varsity compete at Nike South. Please keep them in your prayers as they represent FEAST one last time this season. No matter what happens at Nike, it has been a season to remember and we can’t wait to see everyone on the track!
