Sophomore Breaking Ground
Next Wednesday, October 28, the Viking Cross-Country team will send our first girl competitor to the WPIAL Championships in school history. Kyra Myers, a sophomore, will join Daniel Dunmire at White Oak Park to race against the best runners in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Kyra has worked hard to train for cross-country while maintaining her place as a defender on our girls’ soccer team (her primary sport). In her meets this season, Kyra has taken 4th place against Freeport, 3rd place against Deer Lakes, and 2nd place against both Highlands and Burrell. Not too bad for an athlete who added another sport to an already busy schedule. Daniel and Kyra hope to increase the numbers on our teams next year, but for now, we wish them the best as they represent A-R – and as Kyra establishes another “first” for us in the sport of cross-country. Ray Bartha said, "The Apollo-Ridge School District is extremely proud of Kyra Myers."
