Middle School Cross Country Results
The Lexington Middle School Cross Country teams participated in the Thorndale Cross Country Relay meet held at Lake Granger on Wednesday, October 7. The course was set up on the edge of the lake and wound around for a distance of 1.5 miles.
Each school ran teams of four relay runners that ran the one and one-half miles and in turn handed off to the next runner so that a total of six miles was run to complete the race.
Reagan Johnston started for the girls and had a commanding lead at the end of her leg when she handed off to Alyssa Mireles. Alyssa in turn handed to Caitlyn James and when Caitlyn finished she handed off to Shelbie Abbey for the last leg.
The Middle School Girls finished second at the meet. In cases where a school had less than four runners for a complete team, kids from different schools were spliced together to allow all participants to run.
8th grade Girls Middle Sschool runners Jessica Grimes and Hannah Hoagland competed as well in a mixed school team and ran well.
On the Middle School Boys side only three Lexington cross country runners made the meet. They were 8th grader Corey Strain, and 7th graders Jason Mann and Dustin Albreight. The Lexington boys ran with one player short and were given a time delayed handicap before they started their race. All three boys performed well.
