Women’s cross country team earns academic All-State honors
The Michigan Interscholastic Track Coaches Association recognized Rockford’s women’s cross country team as being Academic All-State this past weekend.

Team Academic All-State is scored much like a cross country race in that a school submits their seven state finalist runners’ grade point averages and records the average of the top five from the competing seven. Rockford recorded a team GPA of 3.847, the sixth best in the state.

Members of the Ram state team were Katie Carlson, Catie Rietsema, Allison Hazy, Taylor Manett, Jane Hawks, Sam Anderson and Sawyer Rocheleau.

Propelling the entire team to the team Academic All-State Honors were three Rams that earned individual Academic All-State Honors. Senior Carlson, and sophomores Manett and Hawks earned this honor by having a GPA above 3.8 and by finishing in the top half of the 239 competitors in the state finals race. Carlson placed 32nd, Manett 53rd and Hawks was 18th at the state finals race.
