Madison County’s cross-country team had a strong showing last week as the varsity boys made quite an impression at Cedar Shoals on Sept. 7.
The Red Raider runners went first, second, fourth, fifth and seventh. Dalton Owensby took first place followed by Corey Brakhage, Ben Larkins and Steven Tucker.
Cedar Shoals took the other positions in the finish.
Coming up for the Madison County runners is the Eagle Run at East Jackson High School on Saturday.
This is the fourth annual Eagle Run meet and includes runners from Apalachee, East Hall, Habersham Central, Jackson County, Jefferson Rabun County and East Jackson.
Madison County should be well rested before the meet on Saturday since the team has not competed since the Cedar Shoals run.
The Eagle run begins at 9:30 a.m. for varsity boys and 10:15 a.m. for the varsity girls. JV races will follow at 11 a.m. There is a $5 admission charge for spectators.
