THANK YOU!
Were you there?  Saturday, May 5, at MHS?  The sun was shining, and the cheers were rising!  Thirteen area Christian Schools participated in the Monroe Christian Invitational Track Meet!  Athletes from 5th-8th grade participated in several events ranging from turbo javelin, shot put, long jump, high jump, to a gamut of running events.  Coach Klingsheim, along with a small crew of dedicated volunteers, successfully pulled off this amazing event.  Kudos to the volunteers!  Cheers for every competitor!  Coach Klingsheim noted that "EVERYONE on the team accomplished at LEAST one PR (personal record)."  Thank you to everyone that helped make this 6th annual meet not only possible but successful.
