The Apalachee High School cross country teams competed in the Varsity Division at the Northeast Georgia Championships at Athens Christian School last Saturday.
Nick Zvirbulis was fifth overall in 18:05.47 followed by teammates Chandler Campbell (16th, 18:51.91), Jeremy Dyal (20th 19:02.89) and Brandon Crocker (47th, 19:59.17). As a team, the Wildcats were fourth in the Varsity Division.
In the Varsity Division for WBHS, Dakota Kay was 22nd in 19:17.56 with Taylor Smith finishing 62nd in 20:23.84. Lofton entered his junior varsity team in the varsity race, but it still netted a ninth place showing. Kay’s time, in fact, earned him a spot on the varsity level for the next meet Sept. 7 at the Northeast Georgia Technical College event.
