Raining rings in Forest

-A A +A

Cross country State champs claim their rewards

By Mike Forster

     To the victors go the spoils.  In this case, it was the Jefferson Forest girls cross country team which raked in their prizes:  The rings that go to State champions.  The team started the season with the slogan, "Know your ring size."  

     That motto proved prescient as the Lady Cavs, who won their title last fall, received championship rings between halves of the JF-Liberty girls basketball game Monday night.  The ladies, in turn, showed their affection by bestowing director's chairs (with names affixed to the backs) to the team coaches.

     Shown (left to right) front row:  Coach Will Stratton, Coach Ruth Fitzgerald, Head Coach Jerome Loy.  Back row:  Tea members Carsen Wilkerson, Erin Saunders, Madelynn Knight, Alyssa Shupe, Abby May, Alexa Hunter, Elizabeth Ruhland, Laci Sorrell and Elizabeth Francis.  Congratulations, team!
