Freshman Kadyn Cobb led the team with a third place finish. Cobb says,”There was a girl right behind me and all I could think about at the end of the race  was finishing ahead of her because every point matters for the team title.”

Junior Zoie Counts also racked up some points for the team with an eighth place finish. Counts explains,”I’ve been running since I was 1o. I fell into a leadership position this year because the other girls would ask me for advice and tips on running.”

“We are keeping a positive mindset and taking the practices seriously and the races one step at a time” explains Hays.
