For those of us who were here in fifth grade, you probably remember biking around campus with Coach Foster at some point in P.E. Well, now with the help of Coach Foster and a few St. Christopher’s students, older students can do even more with St. Christopher’s new mountain biking team.
Members of the team such as Edward Anderson have been mountain biking since Middle School and were very happy with the creation of the school’s team. Edward and fellow team member, Josh Craig, came up with the idea of a school team after contracting out fall of 2013 for mountain biking. The two approached Athletic Director John Gordon and started “breaking the ice,” as Edward Anderson put it, for the team creation.
The team competed in four events in the NICA Virginia High School League (http://www.virginiamtb.org/). The team also made it to the podium (top three finishers) eight times during these four races.
Open to all STC students, the biking team hopes that with the increasing popularity in mountain biking in Richmond that more people will be inclined to come out and join the team next fall.
Members of the team: Edward Anderson ’17, Jack Anderson ’18, Josh Craig ’17, Billy Wilson ’17, Luke Parry ’17, Teddy Roski ’18, and Harrison Rice ’18
Coaches: Lower School Gym teacher Craig Foster, Biking Enthusiast Sean Carithers, Lower School Spanish teacher Tommy Bishop and Upper School Dean of Students Billy Abbott
