Kartel Lane, Fisher Mobley, Lane Howard, Benton Johnson and Teagan Guin rounded out the top 7 runners for the Chiefs.
The girls team was down 2 runners at the meet but still rallied and ran well on this challenging course. 6th grader and first time runner, Ella Allen showed her competitiveness as she improved her time from a week ago and earned a spot on the podium. Cannon Sharpton is a very dedicated and talented runner and will be an asset to the high school program next year.
