The cross country teams competed on Friday and Saturday at the Jackson Invitational. There was speed on the course! 25 of the 26 runners that ran had their season best time. Some cut off over a minute from their previous best! We now have 9 men under 19 minutes and 6 women under 22 minutes. That is a great position to be in halfway through the season. The top scorers were Dylan, Jackson, Oskar, Danny, and Sam on the guys’ side and Ana, Reese, Reaghan, Amelia, and Macy on the ladies’ side. Ana Dunfee placed 13th in a tough field with a time of 19:02. Top JV runners were John and Cash in the boys race and Lina and Maya in the girls race.
