A look at news from around the league for the week of August 17, 2014:
Classes began for many SPC schools this week, and Friday saw the first SPC teams take to the football field for the 2014 season as St. Stephen’s was defeated by visiting Trinty Valley.
Many cross country teams ran their first races. Greenhill hosted the 30th Annual Greenhill/Luke’s Locker 6-Mile Relay at Norbuck Park in Dallas (which will be the site of the SPC 2014 Cross Country Championship). Kinkaid won their division in that event.
Trinity Valley cross country was also in action at the Southwest Christian Invitational, where they put five runners in the top eleven.
Episcopal High School senior Joel Latson won gold in the 4×400 relay with his Texas Storm team at the USATF Junior Olympics.
