Over the weekend, the Crusader Cross Country teams participated in the 9-5A District and Metro Title Races beginning with the Varsity Race on Friday. The team had a solid showing at each of our races but fell just shy of their goals for the weekend. Each team – Varsity, JV, Jr. High – finished runners up at the championships races. Dylan Yates finished second at Varsity District, Andre’ Roevens finished second in a photo finish for the Jr. High title in a gutsy race; and Chace Edwards ran a tactically perfect race to earn the JV individual championship.
The Varsity lost by 7 points, the Jr. High lost by 7 points, and the JV lost a heart-breaker by 2 points. At 2:45 pm next Tuesday, November 13 at Northwestern State in Natchitoches, the Crusaders will toe the line as one of the top contenders in the hunt for the state title.
