The Banks County High School cross county teams completed their season this past week at the Region 8-AA meet.
The runners had a great year with multiple records being set on the school course, coach Kelly McDuffie said.
"What a wonderful year,” the coach said. “With half of the team being new, we were not sure what to expect. Five of the new runners were freshmen and the team had only two seniors competing this season. Anything could actually happen. They stepped it up and were only one spot from the state tournament. There are more exciting times to come.”
The school record was broken by three runners and set by Makayla Hewell at 20:30.
The Lady Leopards finished fifth in the region with 134 points.
