October 17, 2012

A new record was set with 216 total runners with Bailey Lake Elementary runners making up just over half the Clarkston High School field in last Friday's 10th Annual Elementary Cross Country race.

It was the third consecutive year Bailey Lake Elementary has won the traveling trophy for having the greatest percentage of their school participating. They shattered their participation record from last year setting a new record with 20.5 percent of their school participating in this year's race.

The top racers for the boys in each grade were: John Kaul, Kindergarten; Bryce Nowik, first grade; Theo Walker, second grade; Jacob Murray, third grade; Bo Anderson, fourth grade; and Cole Donchez, fifth grade.
