Cross Country has had several meets in the last couple weeks. On Thursday, Sept 17, we hosted the Achaean Classic, our only home meet and a chance to honor our seniors. This year the seniors were John Bowling, Jackson Burrow, Gabe Trivers, Maddie Ransford, Eli Shaw, and Damien Sparks. Both the Herron boys and girls won their races, with Junior Patton Hickman upsetting the seniors in the race for the win. On Sept. 22, the Achaeans traveled to Bethesda Christian School, where we again won both the boys’ and girls’ races. Saturday, Sept. 26 was the Golden Bear Invitational, hosted by Shelbyville HS. Thirty teams competed in the boys’ race, and twenty-one teams competed in the girls’ race. Herron brought ten boys and seven girls, and sixteen of them set new season records!
This week we will meet at Herron on Monday at 4:30 in the cafeteria for pictures. All students should wear their uniforms. Practice will be done by 6:00. Tuesday’s practice will be at Skiles Test Nature park (6828 Fall Creek Rd.). Thursday and Friday will be Broadripple Park, and the City Meet will be on Saturday at Graham Martin Park.
