East Union's First Cross-Country Team
This year, East Union Middle had its first cross-country team. The team is coached by Steve Thomas. According to Coach Thomas, this inaugural year was mainly a learning experience. However, each student did improve their running time over the course of the season. The team practiced at the Wingate University and Forest Hills cross-country courses and ran in meets at McAlpine Parkway in Charlotte.
Tonya Manus, whose daughter Haley runs on the team, said "I am super excited about the new cross-country team at EUMS! My daughter has learned how to improve her running skills and why it is important to work as a team member. Coach Thomas is such a great motivator and has certainly earned the respect of the students and parents. I am looking forward to seeing great things happen as this program grows."
