In addition to remembering September 11, 2001, this year's speakers offered their perspectives on uncertainty, trust, integrity in the classroom, and the importance of accuracy.

Last season's highlights:
The team, led by captains Alina Irvine '21 and Molly Parker '22, certainly faced new challenges as a result of COVID-19, having to deal with a different schedule as well as masks and contact tracing protocols. Regardless of the adversity that they had to face, the girls were able to have a strong season and win the Skyland Conference Valley B Divisional Championship.
What to watch for this season:
● The team will be led by captains Molly Parker '22, Alexis Matthews '23, and Allie Jones '23, all of whom performed strongly last year and have great potential for this season.
● Be sure to watch for the incoming and talented freshmen joining the team this year.
● The team is looking to perform well at the County, Conference, Prep, and State Meets, making up for missing some of those meets last season.
● Coach Christensen's goal is to have the team working and pushing together throughout practices and races to the best of their ability. She believes that, if girls know they can race together, they can become a very powerful pack and be tough to beat scoring-wise.
"It's going to be hard to replace Coach Grant, but I want to use everything that he taught me, especially to help the girls perform their best at the big races. We have a strong returning group and terrific role models within that group; it's the right team to bring along our fabulous newcomers, and I'm very excited about the season!" —Head Coach Sarah Christensen
