Coral Springs Charter continued their busy week with a pair of teams competing in the postseason while their soccer teams began their year.
The cross country team impressed in Regionals, with the girls finishing in ninth place. Lily Richardson finished 16th, followed by Kendall Parrott, while Abby Foster, Brooke Schwartz, Hailey Lockwitz, Taylor Hartley, and Marissa Micioni raced. Eli Groothius set a personal best time for the boys team at 18.21.96 and finished 45th.
“The team ran fantastic,” Head Coach Brantley Barr said. “Not a senior among the girls. They came a very long way this season and are already looking forward to next fall. Now that the first year together is done, the growth as athletes can be enormous. Very excited about the future.”
