Middle School Track & Field Finishes Second in GCAC

The middle school boys and girls track teams finished second overall at the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Championships (GCAC) hosted by First Baptist Academy on Monday in Naples.
The Cougar teams finished runner-up to host First Baptist in a pool of seven participating schools that included: ECS, Community School, Southwest Florida Christian Academy, Village School, and Seacrest Country Day. Both teams each brought home 19 Top 8 finishes, with Cougars finishing Top 3 in 15 events!

"We had a fantastic showing at our GCAC Championship meet yesterday," said middle school coach Cara Summitt. "Thank you to all of our athletes and families for making the trek and commitment to attend and hang in for the long haul! With hundreds of athletes competing from all seven participating schools, and some events with as many as 28 athletes, both of our boys and girls team athletes had PR's galore, with many medals earned. We are so proud of each of them."
