This year’s Silverland Middle School cross country season had many spectacular performances. The team was the biggest teams at Silverland Middle School with 36 participates.

The 7th & 8th grade boys and the 7th grade girls each won the Sagebrush League Championship, bringing home a plaque, and the 8th grade girls took third place in the championship.

Each of the four teams had fabulous seasons, with many athletes making into the top 10 throughout the meets. All athletes pushed themselves to be better and they did just that.


Kael Paz, a 7th grade boy, went the whole season undefeated. Many others kept increasing their placement standing. A well-deserved congratulations to all.
