First, wanted to praise you all for a nicely set up and informative site. I already find I’m checking it regularly for news, ideas and opinions.

I see with some interest your articles on HS sports.  HK has a boy’s cross-country team that has won 2 of the last 3 state championships (they came in a lowly second last year 🙂 and their track team is a perrenial shoreline champion.  The girls’ cross country team this year has a legitimate shot at both the shoreline and state championship, and the track team was last year’s shoreline champion.

This is clearly HK’s most successful sport team, filled with wonderful kids who are leaders in the school (the valedictorian or salutatorian for 2 of the last 3 years was on the cross country team). The parents are very involved and have a running email exchange and online site to post pictures from the meets.
