Lady Pirates Place 6th at Cougar Classic, Three Medal!

IMG_1427.JPGThe Charlestown Pirate and Lady Pirate Cross Country teams competed in North Harrison’s annual Cougar Classic Thursday evening; among at least twenty other schools and over 400 runners.  The Lady Pirates finished in 6th place as a team, with three runners earning medal finishes.  Whitney Andrews finished 20th, Katie Rhodes 23rd, and Gabi Gagnon in 26th place; again against hundreds of runners.  The Charlestown Lady Pirates, as a team, were only beaten out of first place by Jasper, Bedford-North Lawerence, North Harrison and New Albany.  Head Coach Jerry Doyle stated “I couldn’t be more proud of the hard work these ladies are putting in!”

Cross Country will be in action again next Tuesday in the Scottsburg Invitational; and will be fund raising for their program this Saturday with a Yard Sale and Bake Sale at the Charlestown High School parking lot from 9am to 2pm, and a Car Wash at the Charlestown Firehouse on Park St from 11am to 2pm.  For more information about Pirate and Lady Pirate Cross Country, log on to www.PiratePride.BLUE/CrossCountry.
