Wildcats and Lady Cats’ cross country runners will participate in the local Jace Jog 5K Run this weekend to get ready for the upcoming season according to Cross Country Coach Andy Holt. He says some of his runners ran all summer getting ready. The first major competition on the calendar takes place on Saturday, September 5 at UT Tyler. Coach Holt has several returnees including Wildcat Jacob Gatewood who just missed out on going to state last year. Other Wildcat returnees include Tanner Ramirez, Will Fain, Payton Vickery and Cesar Andino. Lady Cat returnees include Lauren Helm, Summer Brooks, Taylor Robinson and Payton Pierce. Coach Holt says he’s looking for young runners to challenge for spots on the varsity.
