Saint Pius X was lead by 8th graders Caroline Wyrick, Kate Dunlay, Alaila Kreuter, Meredith Fennie and 7th grader Anna Schmedes, yet every member of the team played a vital role in the team’s success including…Sullivan Ray, Kate Reed, Alison Wahlberg, Kaitlin Bliss, Mary Ann Edmonds and Lyndsey Gamble.
