Wabash XC Runs At West Noble
The Wabash cross country teams ran in the West Noble Invite Saturday.
The MS Lady Apaches competed in the “Chuck Schlemmer Memorial” invite at West Noble on Saturday. The girls raced at two different times, 7 in the Varsity and 4 in the Reserved. The girls toed the line with 197 varsity athletes and 183 reserved runners. There were 25 full varsity teams and 15 full reserved teams. Each of the groups came out with a bang, running with heart and pushing themselves through the thickest mob of athletes they’ve seen this season. Because this, goals were achieved and some strong finished helped the two teams to get 22nd place in the varsity race.
