Highlander GMC Athletes of the Week

Congratulations to our Highlanders who were named GMC Athletes of the Week!

Cannon Kartye        Boys' Cross Country          Jr.
Before this season, Cannon hadn't run a cross country race since October of 2018. At that time, he had just finished a promising freshman year. We thought he had the potential to be a major contributor in the future, but began to fear we may never find out. To our delight, Cannon ran a huge personal best at Lebanon this weekend and finished as our 4th runner in the varsity race. With this confidence boost, we look forward to his continued success.
