This past weekend West Forsyth’s Girls Cross-Country team won the 4A Midwest Regional meet after capturing the conference title the weekend before. The Boys Cross-Country Team placed second in the regional after a second place finish in the conference.
If you are unfamiliar with all of the ins-and-outs of the sport, just remember that it is one that measures individual and team accomplishments. Runners are gearing up to perform with a personal best, but their placing in the overall meet helps schools win as a team.
West Forsyth knew it had something special when this story was released earlier in the fall talking of their third place finish in the Adidas XC Challenge as the top NC 4A school in the field (http://nc.milesplit.com/articles/221653?page=2).
Next weekend is another chance for the school to win a state-championship – for both the girls and boys.
