Leadership hosted a spaghetti lunch Wednesday for the boys team and coach Parris under the infamous tarps during our lunch period. We wanted to do something to not recognize and honor their accomplishment, but send them off with a good luck celebration.
There was a special section roped off for the boys and big posters were made to inform our students of their amazing lightning speed times. The seven boys include David Garcia, Juan Macias, Luis Becerra, Miguel Villar, Michael Marquez, Lalo Herrera and Michael Ochoa.
The boys will be flying out today to Portland, Ore., to compete on Saturday at the Nike Team Nationals. They will receive all of their running gear, including backpack, cleats, shorts, jersey, sweats, jacket, socks and a Nike GPS watch. The competition will take place outside and the expected weather forecast is 17 degrees midday with a 35 percent chance of snow.
This is the first time any Madera team that has qualified for this race...
