• Key Runner: Mel Wilson
• Coaches: VanDusen, Nevenski
The end of Cross Country is here! Comelanie Wilson, the only runner from Raytown finished up her season running in Jefferson City for the state championship! She finished in 100th place out of 173 runners. Her efforts and practice finally paid off since she made it to state. Happy with her finish, she feels like she could have done better! She still worked hard and lived by her saying, “No breaks, no benches, no timeouts, from start to finish we run this town.”
Since her season is over now she will be making a decision for which college she will attend. Her choices include Ottawa University, Johnson Whales, Southwest Baptist, and Nebraska University! Hopefully within the next couple years we will see her succeed and be in the New York Marathon, her ultimate goal!
Coach: Mr. Azeire
- The boys qualified for state in 3 different events.
- They made the top 18 at state.
- The boys finished their season off very strong.
The boys left for State on November 11, 2010. The boys left a day early to enjoy their time, and prepare for the big day. On November 12, everything became serious, and the boys were ready to perform the best possible. The boys worked really hard, and they worked even harder at State. The finished the first two relays in 2nd place, and unfortunately they got disqualified in the 3rd one. Overall their ranking finished at being 18th, which is very good.
Quoted by Senior Stephen Mullally “I’m really proud of the team, and I know that we gave it our all, it was worth all the hard work because it really paid off.”
Michael Adam Fehr says “Although I went as an alternate it was really cool to watch my team do such a great job and swim at State, I’m really happy I could be a part of everything.” The boys had a great season, and everyone is very proud of them.

Last Friday, at the Homecoming game the jaywalkers did a fantastic job. They managed to do well even with low music volume. These girls were able to get the crowd involved while dancing to show school spirit. Their dance was very appealing to the crowd. They also did their fight song dance every time the band played; this helped get the crowd hype after every touch down. Good Job Girls!
