Head Cross Country Coach presented a certificate of appreciation to the parents of the senior cross country team which was Bailey Hays. Coach Mulvaney stated, “Bailey has been a dominant figure on our track and field teams for the last four years, and was an integral part of why we tried to get cross country here at Monroe City. She is someone that is known throughout the area, not just because of her talent, but because she is an amazing competitor and opponent. Anyone that meets Bailey knows how great of a person and athlete she is, and her leadership and effort will be missed next year.”
