The boys' and girls' cross country teams ran together at Riverside Middle School on Saturday, August 23rd. The races started at 8:15 (girls) and 8:30 (boys), looped around the track and the school grounds, up a hill, and then back to the track for another identical loop. At the end of three miles, the runner slapped hands with the next leg of the relay and around they went again.

During the race it was difficult to know which team was winning as boys and girls, varsity and JV runners were all running at the same time. The heat and humidity of the weekend definitely affected runners later in the morning. However, at the end of 15 miles the boys' A-team (Zach Marion, Matthew Justus, Scott Sweet, Brayden Leopold, Ryan Smith) beat Riverside by one minute and five seconds.
