Both runners helped the Blue Tigers win both the Boys & Girls Interscholastic League Championships. Led by head coach Marina Lopez, the Blue Tigers will travel to Platte Ridge Park Saturday, November 2 to attempt to qualify both teams to state and improve upon last year’s success when three runners qualified individually the for state: current Junior Story Downing, and current sophomores Estrella Hernandez and Elliot Abnos.
