The boys’ and girls’ cross-country teams travelled to the Providence Invitational meet in Charlotte, NC on Saturday – their first competition of the season. On the boys’ side, team captain Brandon Jackson led the Blazers in a successful first meet, running the 5K race in 18:21. On the girls’ side, sophomore Jada Mack led the Lady Blazers, running 25:33, with Freshman Keyani Turner finishing a mere 6 seconds later. The meet was a pure reflection of the hard work the Blazers put in at practice all summer, as they all displayed strong finishes. We congratulate all of the XC runners on their performances!
