Tuesday evening the ECA Middle School Girls Cross Country Team traveled to Memorial High School for a double duel meet against Discovery Middle School and West Side Middle School. The lady Eagles fell to Discovery by a score of 43-18 and to West Side MS by a score of 32-27 despite continued solid performances by Hannah Schramm and Sheridan Maxwell, at the front of the ECA pack, and a new personal best for 8th grader Natilee Marshall. The win for the ECA team came well after the final runner had crossed the finish line. After watching a challenged runner, from a competing school, get lapped by most of the pack during his first lap of the boys’ race, 7th graders Hannah Schramm and Brianna Marshall first went onto the course to support him during his second lap. They then sprinted back and gathered the entire ECA team (boys and girls) to cheer him on at the finish! True sportsmanship and Christlikeness!
