Congratulations to the SLA track team for a great season! A special shout-out goes to Krystal Cabrera who qualifies to complete in the 1600m event in the Public League Championship next week. Good luck, Krystal!
The SLA Cross Country team finished a great season this week at the District Championship. Many runners achieved PRs at the race, including Sam Friedman (10) and Phoenix Satterfield (10) with impressive finishes. Four runners will be continuing on to the State championship in Hershey, PA, next weekend. Congratulations and good luck to returning runners Krystal Cabrera (11) and Kaleb Harris (10), as well as the new-to-the-team Clare Halvorsen (10) and Aleksandra Begier (10). Go Rockets!
Last week 9 students participated in ToMUN, the Model UN conference held by High School No. 1 in Torun, Poland. The SLAmbassadors in this program stayed with host families, shadowed their Polish peers at school, toured Torun and nearby Gdansk, and represented SLA among other Model UN teams from Denmark, Luxembourg, Spain, Finland, Slovakia, and Ukraine.
We are so proud of our students and the way they represented our city and our school! Way to go, SLAmbassadors!
