(Fayetteville, Ga.) – The Northgate Vikings boys and girls cross-country teams competed in the Region 2-5A region championships on Saturday at the Heritage Christian Church Cross Country course.

The Northgate boys earned a berth with a third-place finish. Their top finishers included Bryson Swartz (fourth), Carter Robison (seventh), and Garrett Madden (15th).

The girls team just missed out on the state meet, they finished one spot out in fifth place. Their top finishers were freshman Alexis Wingenbach (sixth), Madison Duke (21st) and Abby Carr (25th).

Wigenbach’s finish, just one spot behind Whitewater’s Brianna Valadao, earned her a berth to individual state championships.
