SCW Cross Country receives sendoff from school (Photo Gallery)

On Friday, November 4th, St. Charles West students crowded around the hallways to send off the St. Charles West girls and boys’ cross country teams.  The boys’ team sent off seniors Abhi Kudaravalli and James Wortham, both individual qualifiers to race at the Gans Creek course (University of Missouri – Columbia ‘s official course) in Columbia, Missouri.  The girls team sent senior Sara Senyard, juniors Avery Jackson and Vivian Jones, sophomores Claire Horstmann, Genna Wacker, Addi Nichols, Abby Loftus, and Lucy Voelkl, and freshmen Melaina Beilsmith, Reagan Govero, Miley Jackson, and Emily Finley.

The runners got to walk with the St. Charles West marching band leading the way, with students and parents cheering them along as they walked the halls of the school.  At the end, parents grabbed pictures and sent gifts, before sending them to Columbia.  Overall, it was an amazing experience for the team.
