A perfect day for a cross country meet produced an almost perfect performance for the Winder-Barrow High School program.
The Lady Bulldoggs took first at Saturday’s Mercer University RunFit Sports Invitational as all five runners were in the top 20, with four in the top 10. The WBHS boys were second with each team member excelling on the course.
“It was a fantastic run,” said coach Michael Lofton. “Everything fell into place. We had great weather. You couldn’t ask for a better morning to run.”
Amanda Cope took first for the WBHS girls with an impressive time of 19:29. Caitlin Connell was third in 19:58. Whitley Kennedy (fourth) and Anna Dean (sixth) were also in the top 10.
