Cross County bringing home medals

The Hemingford Cross Country Team gears up for their practice run. They head to Alliance to compete this Saturday, September 19th. 

The Hemingford Bobcat Cross Country Team practiced hard all summer. Whether training individually or meeting up as a team for a morning or evening run, one thing is certain, this is a strong team that works together and roots for each other like a family.

“They work so hard,” said Coach Jayme Clark. “They have been pushing themselves so hard all season both at meets and at practice.”

This past Tuesday, September 15th, the Bobcats headed to Bridgeport to compete at the Court House & Jail Rock Golf Course during the Bridgeport Invite.

“It was a little warm, but our Bobcats showed some grit,” Clark said. “We are so proud.
