Adams Charter School Runners Take Top Spots at League Meet Sports
GREENFIELD, Mass. – Ninth-graders Drew Svrluga and James Strange placed first and second, respectively, for the Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School in Wednesday’s River Valley Athletic League cross country race at Four Rivers School.
It was the first time a pair of runners from the Adams charter school took the top two places in a league meet.
“I am so proud of our runners, especially Drew and James,” Wolf Pack coach Benn Griffin said. “These are two of the hardest working runners I've had the privilege of coaching over the last decade and a half. I believe if our entire team ran this race, we would have had a great chance for our team to take first place in the meet. This is a big confidence boost going into the middle of the season.”
The Adams charter school’s boys team placed third at the meet without one of its top three runners competing.
