High School Cross Country: Last Friday, we hosted Wells, Gray-New Gloucester and Sacopee Valley at Pineland for the weekly WMC cross country race.  Under hot, sunny skies we enjoyed a large crowd of spectators and enthusiastic runners.  MCWS fielded first place runners in both the boys and the girls races (Tucker and Olivia), with the boys team finishing second, behind Wells and in front of Gray-New Gloucester and Lake Region, and the girls team finishing third, behind Wells and just one point behind Gray-New Gloucester.  We were also happy to have three of our exchange students (Elian, Anéo and Lila) running in this race, with Elian coming in 4th for the boys team!  Many thanks to the parents for a great showing at our home meet – baking, bringing fruit, directing traffic, guiding runners, etc. – all was very much appreciated.  For a more complete write-up of the race, check the team blog at  Runners and their parents are also reminded to regularly check the blog for updates on races, practices and other info.
