The new season will begin a long way from home for the Winder-Barrow High School cross country teams.
The Bulldoggs and Lady Bulldoggs are entered in the Saucony Fleet Feet Cross Country Kickoff Saturday in Savannah. A Coach’s Challenge, which will feature WBHS girls coach Amanda Partee-Manders, begins the day’s event at 7 a.m. followed by the girls race at 8 a.m. with the boys at 8:30 p.m.
“We are ready to run our first meet,” said WBHS boys coach Michael Lofton. “We know there will be a lot of nerves. We ran a trial race to help set up our teams and many runners topped their times from last year.”
