Congratulations to Chrissy Macri (Modified Cross Country) and Skyler Van Wormer (Varsity Field Hockey) for earning DOW (Dutchmen of the Week) honors for the week of October 10.
Chrissy Macri (Modified Cross Country)
At the modified cross country home meet on Oct. 12 at Tawasentha, Chrissy placed 7th overall in a field of more than 50 runners. In doing so, she earned a personal record by 29 seconds! Chrissy works extremely hard at practices. She gives 110% at everything she does. She has a bright future in long distance running. We are lucky to have Chrissy on our team.
