West Side Middle School Cross Country Team More Than Doubles

Students, siblings and parents gathered to run together at Bluff Point Saturday.

Last year, the cross country team at West Side Middle School had 17 students. This year, with the consolidation of three Groton middle schools into two, it has 44.

Saturday morning, more than 20 cross country team members, their siblings, their parents and even a dog gathered at Bluff Point to run together.

“When the schools merged, that was a big crisis for a lot of the kids,” said Annie vanDyke, whose daughter, Caroline, 13, is on the team.

But she said the combination of students has enriched the school and the team.

“The mix has been phenomenal,” she said.

The students planned to run 3.5 to 4 miles.

The kids are fortunate for have such a caring coach/mentor as Denise. My daughter ran with her for 3 years at West Side and several before that in her 'BP running club'.Now at Fitch she continues to share her successes. Thank you Denise!!
