First, I would like to congratulate Liberty High School Cross Country Runner Izzy Lucas. Izzy competed in her 7th Varsity race this past week at the Frank Keyser Invitational @ Boonsboro High School &she continued her stellar Freshman campaign in impressive fashion. Her efforts helped drive the rest of the girls’ team to a 1st place finish in a highly competitive 16 team field. Individually, Izzy ran a new personal record for 3 miles with a time of 19 mins and 25 secs which was the 2nd fastest time recorded by a freshman that day. This also helped her earn a 4 th place finish out of the 155 athletes competing that day.
Athlete of the Week
Next, Cayden Beard, a football player at Winters Mill, left it all on the field against South Carroll on Friday. Cayden contributed 4 tackles, a pass break-up on defense, and had 3 catches for 46 yards. The most impressive feat was his 30-yard game winning touchdown, with just 15 seconds remaining to give the Falcons a 21-17 lead. Cayden’s touchdown put the Falcons ahead for good and sealed the win to bring Winters Mill back to a .500 record at 3-3.
