Despite competing without some of their top runners, the Cedar Creek boys and girls cross country teams recorded solid efforts in Clinton, Mississippi, in a meet hosted by Mississippi College.
The Lady Cougars finished fifth while the Cougars placed seventh.
“It was a beautiful day and the temperature was absolutely phenomenal and our boys and girls took advantage of it,” said Moss. “Our runners loved the course. It is the top cross country course in the south and home of Mississippi College where they train and compete.
“I will add that it’s also home to one of our own Cougar alumni, Gabe Poulin, who is doing incredibly well and setting new Mississippi College records. I am so proud of him.”
John Abram Earles led the Cougars while Madison Morris led the Lady Cougars as both ran with “poise and confidence” according to Moss.
“We are continuing to work on the last half of the race, and I was pleased with our splits at mile one and mile two and excited how we finished mile three,” said Moss. “I see our confidence is growing and look forward to what our runners can do at state. Our top seven is taking shape, and I believe in our teams and what they can do.”
The Cougars have two meets left before their state meet in Natchitoches on November 15th.
