Founders Classical Academy of Lewisville captured its sixth overall State Cross Country Championship within the Texas Charter School Academic and Athletic League on November 12th.
The school has dominated the cross country scene since its inaugural year in 2012, winning an impressive three straight varsity women’s cross country championships and now back-to-back varsity men’s championships in 2015 and 2016 with a previous championship in 2013.
In fact, since competing at the TCSAAL State Cross Country meet, Founder’s varsity teams have never placed lower than second overall and have won both the men’s and women’s championship races since 2015.
This year the Lady Eagles, led by coach Kerry Frost, placed five runners in the top twenty, scoring a team score of 56 points beating second place by more than 50 points.
On the men’s side, the Eagles, led by coach Kevin Frost, placed five runners in the top 10, taking first, second, third, fifth and seventh, resulting in a near perfect score of 18 points.
Coming in first for the men was junior, Elijah Cardenas, running an impressive 16:50 on a tight and winding course, marking the second year in a row in which the team has not only won the overall team championship but the individual championship as well.
