Mintz ends the season on a high
Lions win soccer tournament, cross country takes second place in CCAA conference
On October 21, the Mintz Christian Academy cross country team competed in the Christian Carolina Athletic Association (CCAA) Conference Championship at Sandhills Classical Christian School in Whispering Pines, North Carolina.
It was a close race for the five schools involved. The Mintz Lions came second overall with two top five finishes from Victoria Crumpler (1st) and Matthew Vallini (3rd). Several other Mintz riders finished in the top 10 of their respective races.
The other schools participating in the event:
Liberty Christian Academy
Sandhills Classical Christian School
Academy of Christ the Cornerstone
Temple Christian School
In addition to their cross-country success, the Lions have also dominated football this year. For season 22, Mintz scored a total of 61 goals against 17 for his opponent. They finished the season with an 11-3 record, losing twice to conference rival Liberty Christian Knights and once to Liberty Christian (Durham) in a non-conference tournament. The Lions firmly held second place in conference play at 8-2.
They redeemed their two losses to the Knights on October 24 by beating them in the CCAA Conference Finals 4-1.
