Anna Stock – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Cross Country teams attended the Florida Runners Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 30 in Lakeland.

Both the girls and boys varsity teams competed in the race of the champions, the boys placing 13th and the girls placing 11th overall.

The junior varsity (JV) teams also raced this weekend, participating in the JV white boys and JV white girls race. Overall, the JV boys placed 22nd. The girls team however did not have the minimum of five runners to be able to place and therefore did not have a ranking.

Freshman runner Nicole Pritchard said the JV race was “difficult because of the terrain and how many runners there was, but was fun to race with my teammates and be able to attend the Florida Runners Invitational.”
