XC Knights Finalize Fantastic Season!

On Saturday, October 30, the Blue Knights Cross Country team culminated their season in Springfield, MO, at Homeschool Nationals for the 4th year. Homeschool and Christian school athletes, mostly from the Midwest, gathered at Lake Springfield Park on a crisp, but dry morning. The Knights brought 54 of the 348 total athletes competing. For the first time ever at Cross Country Nationals, the Blue Knights brought home two Championship (1st place) team plaques - 12U Boys were 1st of 4 full teams and JV Girls were 1st of 2 full teams (with a tie-breaker calculation to pull out ahead of our tough competitor, perennial XC powerhouse Christ Prep Academy)!

Here’s a summary of the Blue Knights highlights at Nationals:

  • 21 individual medals
  • Two individual 1st place finishes: Zeke Hagan (12UB) and Tabby Bryant (JVG)
