In December, Wells High School junior Mitch Libby was recognized as Wells High School’s Student-Athlete of the Month for October of 2016.

“Mitch led the team through the entire regular season and through all four championship events,” commented Coach Winn. “Look for more great things from Mitch.”

This fall, the boys and girls cross country teams at WHS qualified for the State Class B championships held in Belfast in early November. The boys team placed second making the team fifth place overall in the State and sixth in qualifying for the 2016 New England Cross Country Championships held later n Rhode Island.
