  • Cross Country State Champions!

    Tandem’s boys varsity cross country team won the VISAA state championship meet (DIV III), with five of our ten runners placing in the top 20 to earn all-state honors. Senior Charlie K took second place in the state with Hayes B at #4, Jack B at #10, Jack N at #11 and Miles G at #13. The boys team was completed by Orro B, Peter W, Sin F, Jack J, and Will M. The boys scored 35 points to handily beat second place Veritas with 91 points. The girls team ran a great race, with Lucy L finishing first for our team, which also included Hazel L, Claire G, Nina I and Avery M. Coaches Jason Farr and Ned Fischer were delighted with the team’s performance on a hilly course on a very warm day, and proud of their determination and hard work over the season. Go Badgers!
