Congratulations to coach Brad Womack and the Patrick Taylor Science and Technology Academy boy’s cross country team, who won the state cross country championship in Natchitoches.  This is the first time in school history that the team has received this honor. Led by senior Stephen Torry, the Class B individual state champion, the Tigers won in convincing fashion beating last year’s champion, Anacoco, by 32 points.  In addition to Torry’s 17:03 win, Taylor placed three other runners in the top ten: last year’s state runner up, Evan Michel (fifth), Edward Johnson (sixth) and Nicholas Melara (seventh).  Rounding out their top five was senior Carson Chauvin (thirty seven).
