August 30 – Jefferson competed in the fifth annual NEGA Cross Country Championships where the Dragons took second place in the large school race for the girls. Four of the Jefferson ladies, Kaylee Lopez, Alison Missler, Jessica Runkel and Mariah Porras, finished inside of the top 25.
Dragons’ boys runners also performed well setting a number of personnel bests. Wesley Milton led the team with a 18:13 finish followed by Josh Deremer and Trae Timmerman with sub-20:00 exploits. Jefferson has a little time before the next meet on September 13, when the Dragon runners will race in the Spartan Ekiden at Athens Academy.
