A house RESOLUTION
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE LEXINGTON HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY TEAM, COACHES, AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS FOR A STELLAR SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR WINNING THE 2022 SOUTH CAROLINA CLASS AAAAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the members of the Lexington High cross country team captured the state trophy from the state competition held at the Sandhills Research Center on Thursday, November 10, 2022; and
Whereas, to the excitement of their patient and exuberant fans, the Lexington Lady Wildcats defeated their nearest competitor, the Fort Mill High School Lady Yellow Jackets, 62-101; and
Whereas, after being the state runner up for the last two years, the Lady Wildcats were determined to accessorize with gold in 2022. They were getting tired of silver and had not won gold since 2012; and
Whereas, the Lady Wildcats posted four of the top fifteen finishes in the course, which make up the All-State Team: Kendra Miles, an eighth grader led the team at 18:59 with a third-place finish; Lydia Metz was seventh, Laurel Walls placed ninth, and Ava Kanitkar came in fifteenth; and
Whereas, only losing one senior to graduation, the team will bring back all the other top runners who are sophomores or younger. Their possibilities for the next few years should continue to improve; and
Whereas, in a sport that requires endurance, strength, and speed, Head Coach Tanner Graham and his skilled coaching staff utilized their own athletic experience and passion to hone a championship-caliber team and teach these athletes life principals that will endure beyond the course; and
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives values the pride and recognition that the Lexington runners have brought to their school and to their community, and the members look forward to following their continued achievements in the seasons to come. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor the Lexington High School girls cross country team, coaches, and school officials for a stellar season and congratulate them for winning the 2022 South Carolina Class AAAAA State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Ryan Pool, Principal of Lexington High School, and to Coach Tanner Graham.
