JICS 2017 Cross Country Accolades

In both Cross Country and Swimming, JICS competes in the State Championships within SCISA. (The South Carolina Independent School Association) In order to fully appreciate the accomplishments of our students, it is very important to note that the SCISA State Championships in Cross Country and Swimming include all students in 6th grade through 12th grade.  They are considered Varsity Meets.  Consider that when you read the following!

The last Saturday of October saw Coach Jon Lakemacher lead the JICS Cross Country teams to compete in the Varsity Level Cross Country State Championships.   Out of all the 1-A schools and their varsity teams, our JICS Girls Cross Country team came in 3rd place! Posting this amazing finish were runners Cadence Daniel, Joy Lakemacher, Meagan White, Anikka Pace and Faith Lakemacher.  In fact, only eleven seconds separated the JICS 3rd place finish from the 1st place champion team!  The boys team placed 6th out of all the 1-A varsity boys teams as well and pulled this off while having three 6th grade runners! What a feat!  The boys team included Josh Cook, Seth Glover, Trey Hunt, James Holdgate, Sean White and Caleb Cook.  Out of all the varsity girl runners, Faith Lakemacher , for the second year in a row, finished 4th in the 1-A girls race!   The boys side was packed with high school varsity runners and Trey Hunt's hard work and dedication earned him a 9th place finish in the race!
