🏆Championship Weekend @ Bethany 2024

The Boca Warrior Elementary squad came into the 2024 Bethany Christian Elementary Season Championship firing on all cylinders. There were a lot of personal bests, and memories to last a lifetime.

The 2nd-3rd grade girls capped off their dominant month-long Bethany series with a 1st place team trophy, and the 4th-5th grade girls powered past 10 other teams to take 2nd overall.

Our team is full of champions, whether they medaled or not. All gave their best effort, and cheered each other on as only a Warrior can. See the full results here. 2/10/2024.

The Bethany Championship was the final event of a month-long track & field series at Carter Park in Ft Lauderdale, FL. Our athletes consistently showed up to practices weeks and days before the championship event, trained hard, and all their dedication paid off with outstanding team and individual performances.
