A team of eight Stanley Middle School students representing the Rain or Sunshine Running Club were presented with the Team Competition trophy at the annual Napa Valley 5K Race held on March 1. The award was given to the team with the fastest four runners and included adult and youth teams.
The Rain or Sunshine Running Club is coached by Diane Bachelor and David Kohls of Lafayette. The club of 20 Stanley students trained for eight weeks building their speed, strength and endurance. "Coach David and I are extremely proud of our team," said Bachelor. "Their results were outstanding and demonstrates that hard work and dedication has its rewards!"
Seventh grader Andrew Owens was Rain or Sunshine's top scorer, placing 12th overall out of over 430 runners with a time of 20:55. Other top finishers were sixth grader Derek Kotarba, seventh grader Harrison Seymour and eighth grader Isaac Brent.
