The Alter Knights Girls Cross Country Team won the DivisionII Varsity race on Saturday, August 23rd at Centerville. It was a fiercely contested race with the deciding runner helping us win with a tie breaker. Alter and Springfield Shawnee were both tied at 45 points with Abbi Nichols (1st Place), Kristen Petroski (2nd place), Tiffany Ward (12th place), Meg Schwieterman (14th place) and Abby Bishop at 16th place. This meant we went to the 6th runner to decide the win. Alter's Tess Harnett finished three girls ahead of Springfield Shawnee's 6th runner giving us the 1st place trophy. Abby and Kristen also received trophies for their 1st and 2nd places, giving Alter HS a trophy sweep.
