Cross country chased after the Gingerbread Jamboree title on Thursday at Camp Copass through a muddy 5k course.

“I think we didn’t do as good as we expected, simply because the course seemed to be more of an obstacle,” senior Ben Alfred said. “Due to things like mud pits, hay bales, and random vines dropping down, this was a peculiar meet for sure.”

The girls’ team began at 7:00 a.m. finishing third, and the boys team raced at 7:30 a.m. placing fourth.

“I think we performed really well especially since we had not run this meet before,” sophomore Jada Williams said. “We took away that we have to go in positive when facing a challenge.”
