There will be a senior meeting today during activity period in the cafeteria. 

The boy's cross country team captured the school's first team award since 1976 when they won the Red Bud Invitational yesterday.  New Athens had five runners in the top seven with Zach Bickel 2nd, Zach Bogacki 4th, Jonathan Robinson 5th, Staton O'Dell 6th and Derrick Hoffman 7th (all earning individual medals) as the team ran in a close pack for the three mile course.

The girl's cross country team picked up their 4th championship as they were nearly as impressive in winning the girl's race.  Olivia Hoffman was 1st followed 15 seconds later by Molly Works in 2nd, Bailey Dudeck was 5th and Brandi Garrett was 8th (all earning individual medals). Courtnie Niederbrach was the #5 runner for New Athens in her first race back after some medical issues.

The cross country teams compete in the Conference Meet on Monday at Okaw Park.  The girl's race is at 4:15 and the boys run at 4:50. Volunteers are needed to help run the meet.
