Our Essex Valley School Cross Country team showed heart and determination in a 2.1-mile race at Saddle River Park. The team stuck together and pushed each other through positive encouragement and a strong sense of camaraderie. Out of over forty students from five different schools, one of our EVS athletes placed second overall, earning him a silver medal with an astonishing time of 13:27! The schools were also given team rankings based on the combined average finish times of each of its members. Our EVS Panthers received the 3rd place bronze medal for a great team finish! On behalf of our staff we would like to congratulate our runners and give a special thanks to one of our physical education teachers, Molly Ann Maggiore, for preparing and motivating them towards success!
