The Winder-Barrow High School cross country teams did not have their best performances of the season, but coach Michael Lofton is still confident his runners will be prepared for the upcoming Region 8-AAAAA meet.
WBHS competed at the annual Coach Wood Invitational in Gainesville Oct. 18.
“We had homecoming fever I think,” said Lofton. “The course was slower than what we’ve been running on but we still didn’t do near as well as we have been doing.”
Micah Weathers did not compete for the Lady Bulldoggs as her coach wants her at full strength for region.
Harrison Daniel did not run for the varsity boys, suffering from a twisted ankle.
“When you don’t have key people running, it hurts you,” Lofton said. “With two weeks until the region meet, we will give them a few days off and then get back at it. We want to train well and be ready for the region meet.”
