There are a variety of things that happen at the farm. One of our fall happenings is the Northern Maryland FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Cross Country team using the property as their home running course. Middle school athletes run a 2 mile course and the high school athletes compete on a 3 mile course around the property. If you are familiar with the farm you can appreciate that the course includes running up the hill from the pond. This year FCA hosted two league meets as well as an Invitational Meet for area Christian schools that included a devotional time.
We would like to congratulate this year’s FCA teams for their outstanding accomplishments. All four teams (boys/girls & middle/high school) won the league championship titles along with each of the four teams also having the individual race winners in that end of year league competition. The middle school boys and girls teams were able to compete in the private school state meet and each team took first place in that competition as well. Three runners in the boys and three runners in the girls’ race placed in the top ten in that competition and took home individual medals as well.
The farm is excited to partner with the FCA Cross Country teams and to celebrate your successes this season with you. We also are excited to hear about the spiritual growth of the athletes as they participate in weekly devotional times and prayer with their team members and coaches.
