Spring Providence Classical is truly a family.
They run together.
They win together.
They struggle together.
They go on mission trips together and return with experiences that put their cross-country pursuits in perspective.
Last season, Providence Classical swept the 3A TAPPS XC Titles.
The girls, led by then freshman Hannah Mann, captured gold over Denton Calvary Academy by two points. The boys, on the other hand, led by current senior and overall number one finisher Zachary Kleppel, dominated the field, outdistancing second place by 70, scoring an impressive 27 points.
This year's move to TAPPS 2A will see them face both of last year's state title winners in Southcrest and traditional power Shiner St. Paul. Title hopes are still part of the focus, as both squads return a majority, but competing as a family and enjoying the bond built for many since elementary school is the priority.
