MHS cross country competes at Horton
Running at what coach Jamie Noll called the team’s most difficult course so far this season, a pair of McLouth High cross country runners placed in the top 40 at Horton on Thursday.
Derek Wright finished 35th in the 5K with a time of 20:14 and Gelia Gardner took 39th in the 4K, finishing in 20:11.
“We have maintained pretty decent times throughout the season but now that we are getting down to the last few meets, this is the most crucial time to be running faster,” Noll said.
The Bulldogs’ next event is Thursday at Pleasant Ridge.
