KNIGHTS RUN STRONG, WELCOME GUAHAN ACADEMY CHARTER TO IIAAG

No rain was going to affect the first IIAAG Cross Country meet of the season between the St. John’s Knights and newcomers in the Guahan Academy Charter School Starfish.

High school sports has already seen enough setbacks which meant Thursday’s downpour of rain wasn’t going to stop the first meet of the IIAAG Cross Country season between the St. John’s Knights and the new comers Guahan Academy Charter School Starfish at Two Lovers Point.

The new school on the block got a chance to see last years fastest boys runner in action, Knight sophomore Alex Clark, who led his team again on Thursday with a blazing time of 19:16.80.

“I’ve been definitely practice a lot more so it felt good to be back running. Hopefully I’ll be able to repeat what I did last year,” said Clark who came in 1st place in the All-Island Meet. “We had to prepare since it’s been a little while since we ran this course, but personally I like I course.”

For the girls, Knight Jordan Baden not only finished first amongst females, but finished 3rd overall with a strong time of 21:52:20

“One of my teammates, Jacob Jackson, was able to push me all the way to the finish… I used this race to get acclimated into the season and get a time down,” said Baden.

Guahan Academy Charter School might have only suited up seven runners, but first finisher for the school Tre Muna made history after competing in their first ever sports event under their new GACS Starfish moniker.

“I’m proud. We’ve been working hard to get a team out here to finally get to represent our own name so I’m proud regardless of the result. I’m really appreciative that we were even able to be here. It was a good experience for all of my teammates and I’m looking forward to it again,” said Muna.
