The boys and girls cross country teams have come a long way this season. They have had a few tough meets and many injuries throughout the season. The girls and boys teams are both very different.
The girls team is very young and consist of many freshman. The leading runner for a majority of the season was Callie Hoover. They started the season being mediocre and ended being great. They won the SAC meet by a tie breaker to Dwenger. Carmen Trier won the tie breaker by having a faster time than their 6th runner. They then beat all the odds and kept advancing. They advanced passed sectionals, Regionals, Semi-state and then made it to state. They ended up in 22nd place out of around 400 teams.
The boys team also had a slow start this year. Their leading runner was sophomore, Reece Gibson. They had a lot of injuries. Most of the Team was injured at one point. They then won SAC by one point. They then advanced at sectionals, regionals, semi-state and then went on to state. At state they got 18th place. The top runner, Reece Gibson placed in the top 20. He was the only underclassman to do so. Great job to all the cross country runners! Keep running hard! Good luck next season and with all your training!

On Saturday, October 28, the boys soccer team played the state championship. Not only was this our senior soccer boys’ first state championship within their four years of high school, but it was the first time that the Concordia boys soccer team ever went to state. Coached by Kevin Macke, the boys put sweat, blood, and tears into this season. Some injuries occurred, but the boys pulled through ending with an amazing season and memories they’ll always remember. Though they didn’t win, the boys played a season they’ll never forget.

Varsity Football By: Deedee Ridley
This season is looking great for Concordia’s Varsity Football team!
With Brandon Davis being a Freshman Quarterback on the Varsity team, the Cadets are getting wins after wins.
During the game against Lakeland (the SECOND game of Sectionals), Senior Marcus Morrow scored an astonishing three touchdowns.
The Student Section, crowd and cheerleaders went wild every time he scored.
The boys shut out Lakeland High School with an outstanding score of 32-0. The overall win for this season so far is 7-4.
The Cadets play very well as a team. They are so close to their second championship ring in a row. With great offense, defense and constant communication on the field, they could win it all!
Let’s go, Cadets! Let’s go!
