Boys Cross Country: 6-3

Boys Cross country ended their season positive this year, better than last year’s 4-5 season. With an extremely talented group of seniors leaving last year, the new class had to step up and they did just that. Senior runners Bryton Henry and Owen Moore led almost every race for the BASH team. Up-and-coming talent Kollin Miller, Dominic Derafolo and Todd Barton are leading the races behind the seniors and likely to be team leaders next year.

Girls Cross Country: 4-5

Girls Cross Country barely ended the season under .500 this year. Still, they had a successful season considering the youth of the team. This year the team struggled to get a runner into the top-five finishers, especially early in the season. Top runners for the team included Maddy Hunsberger, Amanda Murray, and Grace DeMenno, who all put up great times for the team leading almost every race.

Girls Tennis: 3-6
