The Michigan Interscholastic Track Coaches Association (MITCA) recently recognized the Lady Rams cross-country team of Rockford as being Academic All State.

Team Academic All State is scored much like a cross-country race in that a school submits their seven state finalist runners’ grade point averages (GPAs) and record the average of the top five from the competing seven. Upon doing this, Rockford recorded a team GPA of 3.847, the sixth best in the state. Members of the Lady Rams state team were Katie Carlson, Catie Rietsema, Allison Hazy, Taylor Manett, Jane Hawks, Sam Anderson and Sawyer Rocheleau.

Propelling the entire team to Team Academic All State honors were three Lady Rams who earned Individual Academic All State honors. Senior Katie Carlson and sophomores Taylor Manett and Jane Hawks earned this honor by having a GPA above 3.8 and by finishing in the top half of the 239 competitors in the state finals race. Carlson placed 32nd, Manett 53rd, and Hawks was 18th at the state finals race.
