Congratulations to Bryce Richards and Mickey Cardenas, who qualified to run in the Schaumburg IHSA Sectional, to be held at Busse Woods on Saturday, November 2nd.  Good Luck, Mustangs!  Bus leaves at 7:45 Saturday.

Reminder-  All runners who are done for the season need to turn in their uniforms and sweats ASAP.
