The Lakota East men’s cross country team just narrowly missed being GMC runner-up as a team by 3 points.  They placed 3rd overall in a very competitive race at Saturday's GMC Championships at VOA.  Leading the way for the Thunderhawks was senior, Will Tenoever, who placed 11th overall, in the 68-man field, in a lifetime best performance of 16:33.2 on the 5k Championship Course.  That time moves Tenoever up to #22 all-time at Lakota East High School.  That performance also earned Tenoever 1st Team All-Conference Honors. 

Junior, Marshall Novean, also earned 1st Team All-Conference accolades with his 14th place overall finish in 16:53.0.  Senior, Ashton Gibbs, was right on Novean’s heels placing 15th overall (2nd Team All-Conference) in 16:53.2.  The 4th Hawk across the line was junior, Sean Castillo, placing 20th overall in 17:18, a 2nd Team All-Conference performance.  Freshman, Evan Aponte, rounded out the top 5 scorers for Lakota East placing 29th overall in 17:45, tying his season-best time.
