JICS Track Teams earn honors at Upstate Meet

Coach Jon Lakemacher, along with assistants Mrs. Heather Mesenbourg and Mrs. Beth Vanderbeck, traveled to Greenville/Spartanburg, S.C. with the JICS Track teams to compete in the Southside Christian Middle School Championships. The track team capped off an amazing inaugural season with a record setting performance in the Southside Christian Middle School Championships.

The JICS girls captured third place with 80 points and had two individual event champions as Faith Lakemacher won the Discus and Delaney Pace won the 800. Your JICS boys team took home the trophy with a second place finish led by Zeke Mesenbourg's championship in the 2 mile and Darren Frasier's title run in the 800, which was the fastest run by a middle school student this year in that event. 

What a great start for the future!   JICS would like to thank Coach Lak for his tireless effort and motivation of the students to achieve more than they ever thought they could!  We are so thankful for the participation level (check out that picture below!) that we had and hope that each student carries with them the perseverance that they learned!
