Lions CC standout remembered

    Another tragedy has struck the running community of Florida.

    A member of King High School's girls cross country team was a victim of a shooting yesterday.

    Please pray for Coach Gary Bingham, his team, and the entire community. My team actually had the privilege to attend a running camp with Gary's team this summer. Super kids... I can not begin to comprehend what they are going through right now.

    My prayers go out to Coach Bingham, the King Girls CC team, and the King community. I had the privilege of being able to talk a little to Calyx during a meet in September. Super kid, and was very excited about their team this year. Coach Bingham is a class act and puts on a great program, and we are saddened to hear about their loss. Prayers go out from Seffner Christian XC & TF

    My deepest prayers go to the family and friends of Miss Schenecker. May she run through the kingdom of the lord with spirit and peace.

    Definitely thinking and praying for Calyx's friends and family. I also want to mention the same for her brother who was acknowledged in the article, but not named. What a sad situation. I can't even imagine how anyone could do that to anyone but especially their own children... just crazy and sad.

    I want to thank everyone for their prayers in this time of need! My team was a close knit family we may be small in numbers but everyone of them have big hearts and are great friends to each other. Keep Their dad in your prayers he is a great man and I can only imagine his pain. Thanks Coach Gary Bingham

    Gary - Is there any kind of fund being started, either for expenses the father must pay for, or in remembrance of the two children? On behalf of Wiregrass Ranch CC, please let us know so we can make a donation.

    I am so very sorry for this senseless tragedy...
    Rest in peace, Calyx.
