KMHS Cross County is having an outstanding season! The team is paced by senior runners Elizabeth Rice and Will Bullock. Liz and Will won their first race of the season at the Pickens Preview at Roper Park in Jasper. The boys and girls teams both brought home 3rd place trophies that day. As the season has progressed, the Mustang team captains Elizabeth and Will, along with Trey Davis, Morris Kindler, Stevie Limon and Zoe Vaupel have provided leadership to both the varsity and junior varsity runners. This past week the Mustangs hosted the Mustang Stampede Invitational at Allatoona Creek Park in Acworth. Elizabeth Rice finished first in the girls varsity race while Will Bullock finished 3rd, achieving his personal record time for a 5K of 16:07.8. Also, Morris Kindler won the JV boy’s race earning a spot for this week’s varsity race in Cartersville.
Congratulations to Girls Varsity softball coach Lisa Chapman for the team’s 400th victory during her 18-year career.
Chapman, who has led the Lady Mustangs’ program from its inception, earned the milestone win recently against one of her proteges, North Paulding coach Jennifer Maloney — a former Kennesaw Mountain and Alabama standout under her maiden name of Fenton.
Kudos to our players and coaches for this amazing accomplishment!
