CCBS Sweeps Apple Fest 5K

CCBS came to Westminster and our boys blew  away the 14 and under competition in the annual 5K Apple Fest run.

Eddie and Ari sport their new medals.

Ari, Eddie, Barron, and Sam A. took the top four places  in their age group, all finishing in 31 minutes or less.

Coaches Josh and Kayla ran with our own Family Center Coordinator Debbie Wallace, all finishing around the 34 minute mark. Weekend Coordinator Andrew Stevenson, who will take over cross country coaching responsibilities from Josh, finished 15th overall and third in his age group.

The next official race is during Octoberfest and the boys will continue to train hard to sweep those medals as well. Congratulations CCBS Cross Country team!
