Region I has been known as the most competitive region in the state, and it lived up to that reputation for 2019. The girls team finished 11th among 16 teams and the boys finished ninth among 21 teams. NCHS qualified nine team members to run in the State Meet by placing in the top three in their respective events.

Congratulations to these kids for qualifying for the State Meet in Baton Rouge in such a competitive field.
