CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to the football team on their overtime win over St. James on Friday! Thanks to those super fans who made the trip. We need all of you this Friday when we travel over to Carroll.

A huge thank you to the many faculty, staff, alumni, and students that came to the Cessna Activity Center Saturday to watch the cross country team at the City League championship. The coaching staff and athletes appreciated the support. Erik Enriquez and Lizzie Niederee placed 3rd and 2nd respectively and are the top freshmen in the city. Eric Wright and Andrew Boeding earned medals in the JV boys race. The JV boys had the highest team finish in the last nine years, placing 3rd. The varsity girls had the highest team finish since 2006 placing 2nd. Erik Enriquez, Lizzie Niederee, and Emily Michaelis were named All City First Team. Mason Bina, Maddie Byrd, and Adam Hernandez were named All City Honorable Mention.

The KMC tennis team completed a very successful season with Clara Whitaker winning the singles title and Kelly House and Eleanor Baldwin winning the doubles title AND taking 3rd place as a team at the 5A State tennis tournament at Maize South. It was all Kapaun/Carroll finals again (just like city league and regionals) and the Crusaders triumphed once again! Congratulations ladies!
