Groesbeck High School Cross Country Begins Season

Journal Staff Report

As Hurricane Harvey made it's way into central Texas, the Groesbeck Cross Country team was in Moody for their first race of the season.  This meet was not the traditional XC meet format, instead runners were in teams of three and ran in relay fashion.  Each runner ran a distance of 1.5 miles for their leg of the relay. 

With the rain coming down the course quickly became slippery, but the Groesbeck runners still found success.

In the Varsity Girls division, Willow Johnson, Brianna Dobson, and Rylie Goodman placed 3rd overall out of 20 relay teams.
