    The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) Cross-Country State Championships have come and gone, and WCS students have emerged with two more State titles. 

    On November 3-4, high school student-athletes around the state competed in Hendersonville. Nolensville High's Claire Stegall won the title in the Division I Class AAA Girls 5k run. Her coach is Christopher Demetra.

    "Claire is an incredibly focused, dedicated and hardworking athlete," said Demetra. "Our whole team was thrilled to see her win a State championship. She gives 100 percent every day in everything she does, and it's very rewarding to see her achieve her goals."

    Also in the Division I Class AAA category, the Brentwood High girls cross-country team won the State title. Their coach is Robert Pautienus.
