They started early and had to deal with wet grass, mud and chilly weather as well as the hills. The course was 1.85 miles long but is a slow course since it is on uneven terrain and with several big hills.

Justin Allred had a good race finishing with a 22:26. “The boys made great improvements and it was fun seeing them run together as a team. If they stick with it they will be good in the future,” said coach Scoggins.

The team was missing their one girl runner Macy Morgan this weekend. “She also made great improvements and also has a great smile on her face,” said coach Scoggins.
