Commerce’s cross-country runners showed improvement last week at Madison County in the Tigers’ second meet.
On the girls’ squad, Sierra Martinez and Kacee Cooper improved their run times. While the ladies didn’t have enough runners for a team score, Commerce finished 16th and 17th in a field of 29 runners. Martinez finished in 34.56 followed by Cooper at 34.57.
“They are improving,” said coach Mark Hale. “Both Sierra and Kacee dropped almost three minutes from their times the week before.”
For the boys, Commerce finished fourth overall with 118 points. Taking first place was East Jackson with 23 points followed by Jackson County with 69 points, and Madison County with 70.
