The GCXC traveled to Sharp Springs Recreation Area in Smyrna on Saturday for the league’s championship race. With runners from AAA, AA and A schools, the starting lines contained well over 500 runners, but they all came with the determination and stamina to be fierce competitors!
The men raced first on this cool, rainy race-day. Out of 192 runners from AA and A schools, John David Dickerson finished 8th, earning him a medalist ranking. Other GCXC men finished well: Austin Campbell-49th, JC Beene-89th, Brandon Nunley-101st, Matthew McFarland-102nd, Caleb Grimes-161st, and Jordan Harris-177th.
Julie Nance quickly found her pace as soon as the starting gun fired for the women’s race. Among the 153 female runners from AA and A schools, Julie finished 20th!
This week the GCXC team travels to Webb School on Thursday for the John Freeman Invitational. This will be their last regular season meet before the region on October 23. No half-times. No substitutions. No time-outs. GO RUN!
