In the first and only home race of the year, the Southwood Boys and Girls Cross Country competed against two talented teams in Oak Hill and Manchester Tuesday evening at Etna Acres Golf Course. The hilly and hot conditions made for a great first race, especially for the 6 freshman running for Southwood.
The girls, led by Morgan Farr, placed 3rd as a team. Morgan was followed by Kassidy Atwood, Ellie White, Makayla Bechtold, Jeana Friedersdorf, Monica Coffelt, Eva Goff, Emmy Titus and Spring Applegate.
The boys team, paced by Josiah Friedersdorf, placed 2nd. Right behind Josiah was Aaron Ross, Chase Guenin and Luke Winer, who were then followed by Jonathan Collins, Justin Lawson, and Lucas Topliff.
The boys and girls have one of only two weekends off this coming week before heading to Southern Wells next Tuesday.
