Summer Miles, Fall Smiles – Titans Win Boys and Girls Cross Country Regionals

Today a first occurred for West Forsyth Titan Athletics – both the boys and the girls’ teams won the Regional Meet. While both have qualified to run as teams in the state meet, the fact that both teams won today’s regional meet against rather stiff competition was impressive.

This was the first meet I have attended and while I am familiar with a little of how a meet is scored and judged, it can never be stressed enough how much this really is a team sport. Every runner counts, and the one who may finish seventh for the team may be the one who literally “seals” a team win.

Also, nearly two inches of rain fell on the running course yesterday. Didn’t stop any of the competitors.

Congrats to the runners and Coach Newsome, Coach Thompson, and Coach Chapman.
