The Braswell Little D Invitational on Friday saw some top finishes for both the boys’ team, and two girls. The boys’ team finished third overall,  while senior Jada Williams and freshman Sofia Golladay finished 5th and 6th, respectively. 

“I think we’re in the ‘dog-days’ of the season,” boys’ coach Ben Manning said. “We’re all tired and we all want to make it past Districts. We’re in striking distance of some of our top competitors. I think we’re right where we need to be.”

Senior Devansh Saxena, who ran a 16:36 at the Braswell Little D Invitational, emphasized the importance of continued care, on and off the track. 

“We have to continue to hydrate,” Saxena said. “Keeping track of what we put in is really important in running fast.”
