RANGELY | The Rangely Panther cross country team traveled to the Eagle Valley Cross Country Invitational meet on the Gypsum Creek Golf Course. The course was run all on grass making the course a little slower than a race that is on a dirt trail or a road. The Panthers all had a good day of running and worked on passing other runners throughout the race.

Raelynn Norman was the first female finisher for the Panthers.
