Individually, Wheatley’s Julia Schriefer (Grade 11) captured the Class III Championship with a dominating performance. Additionally, Emmie Keys (Grade 11) came in 4th place and Nayiri Barton (Grade 9) came in 22nd place. As a result of these performances, these three athletes earned All-County recognition! Congratulations to them!
