The RRHS Cross Country teams ran in a Northern Carolina Conference meet on Wednesday October 4 at Southern Vance High School.
The Men's team came out victorious with a 1st place finish over the other conference schools. Jacob Bouchard won the Men's race with a personal best time. The Women's team had a strong race to finish 2nd, just behind a powerful Granville Central team.
Top 10 overall finishers for RRHS were:
Jacob Bouchard 1st place
Eric Baird 7th place
Riley Mills 9th place
Catherine MacNichol 2nd place
Caitlin Bobbitt 6th place
Morgan Davis 7th place
Kate Pleasant 9th place
Brittany Milan 10th place
Coach Mark Snead stated, "This was our best meet of the year overall. Our runners dropped some really good time this week. They have pushed themselves hard at practice and it has paid off. I am proud of our Men's team and Jacob for coming in 1st in the meet. But it has been a back and forth battle all year and they know they have to keep pushing to stay out front. I am also happy for our Women's team. They are gaining ground on Granville Central and know to catch them they have to keep up the hard work. I really like how both of our teams are shaping up at this point in the season."
The next meet for the RRHS Cross Country teams in on Wednesday October 11 at Louisburg High School.
