Congratulations to the Lady Dragons on their historic victory at the 2023 Tennessee State Championships! It's evident that their hard work, dedication, and teamwork paid off, especially in the final race where they secured the top spot. Gabrielle Gulstrom's leadership and the collective effort of the entire team truly shone through.
The season's journey, with its ups and downs, highlights the resilience and determination of the Lady Dragons. Winning 10 out of 14 races, including notable victories in the Ed Murphey Classic, Christian County XC Opener, and TMSAA West Tennessee Sectionals, showcases their consistent excellence throughout most of the season. Overcoming challenges and refocusing to claim the state championship demonstrates the team's strong character and ability to rise to the occasion.
It's also worth celebrating the success of the Lady Dragons' JV team, led by Rachel Mullaly, who not only contributed to the team's overall success but also claimed the title of JV State Champion. The depth and talent within the program bode well for the future.
As the Lady Dragons already set their sights on the next season, it's clear that they have a winning mentality and a foundation for continued success. The teamwork, camaraderie, and dedication displayed by the athletes and coaches are truly commendable. Best of luck to the Lady Dragons in their future endeavors!
