Wildcat Wilderness Run: Cross Country Breezes into 2nd Place

By Audrey Hagens

The crisp morning air was carried on a light breeze and high hopes as determination drifted through the morning sky. It was an early Saturday morning; the world was quiet. September 3rd was a good day for many: the varsity boys placed second behind Apollo, and Alyssa Hewitt, first time middle school runner, broke the school record for the 3K, while also placing 9th. Our Logan County Cougars performed with excellence, much like Malcom Reynolds in “Shindig.”

Give our runners a paw for their outstanding performance. This Saturday, September 13th, they take on Kereiakes Park at the Purple Striders Invitational. Much like Malcom’s duel with Atherton, I suspect that they will emerge victorious.
