H-M-S cross country runners compete at GLR/CL meet

The cross country meet hosted by George-Little Rock/Central Lyon has traditionally been a "tune up" for Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn runners before the War Eagle Conference and state qualifying meets later in the month.

H-M-S competed in the G-LR/CL meet on Oct. 6 at Otter Valley Country Club, with the boys' team finishing fifth and the girls coming in seventh.

In the girls' race, Lexi Croatt placed 36th, 25:26; and Gracie Knobloch finished 40th, 26:07. The other H-M-S runners were Kamryn Ebel, 45th, 27:42; Clara Funk, 46th, 28:26; and Juliana Pasillas, 47th, 28:58.
