It was a great day in Jupiter, FL this past October 3rd, with the Boca Warriors taking top spots in all 4 categories. Top placements were rewarded with medals, trophies and a special prize 🧸.
Middle School Boys: 3K
Jeremy Lopez ran a great 3K race with a sub-11 time of 10:55:92, and finished 2nd overall for Middle School boys.
(A quick note on Jeremy: Jeremy is one of the original Boca Warriors, having been at the very first Boca Warrior practice that we ever had, with a handful of other kids and Coach Crate. Jeremy has helped set the standard of excellence that defines what it is to be a Boca Warrior and he's developed into a great runner and teammate. Great job Jeremy!)
Middle School Girls: 3K
Makaela Morilla and Adriana Perrette finished 1st and 2nd for the Middle School girls, leading the Girls' team to 2nd place. Hanna Dohler and Rileigh Buechler and Alana Stevenson also picked up valuable points that were needed for the girls' team finish.
Elementary Boys: 2K
Banks Stroup had an amazing finish, holding off a serious challenge down the stretch, and came in 1st overall for the Elementary Boys' 2K race.
