Regardless of scores, all our athletes competed like champions- Northgate brought a very large team to the event, including NCS leaders in several events, but your Dons didn’t back down and still finished in the top 3 in nearly every event. More importantly, they did so with the support of their teammates. Our entire coaching staff is incredibly proud of the way all of our athletes cheer each other on, and compete not as individuals, but as a team!
