Congratulations to the TEAM for placing 2nd and 1st at the 5A Regional 5 meet this past Thursday. Thank you to everyone that drove the 100 miles to Fountain to cheer on the team. Having fans and teammates makes a huge difference at meets, and there was a very noticeable amount of Vista Nation green out on the course yelling for our athletes at Regionals!
The girls fought a hard battle against Pine Creek to bring home the runner-up trophy. The boys won the meet by placing 9 runners in the top 23 with a 1 to 9 gap of 41 seconds. Here are the results from Regionals:
