Wildcats and Lady Cats Cross Country Coach Ross Hicks said he was pleased with last Saturday’s (August 18) time trial run at Coleman Park to determine his seven Wildcats and Lady Cats who will run this Saturday at the Commerce Tigers Invitational at Commerce High School.
He said Kaitlyn Ferrell was the top finisher for the Lady Cats Saturday. She was followed by Landrie McKinney and Ashley Noe.
For the Wildcats, Landon Thornton ran a very strong race. Coach Hicks said it was close to times run by college runners on the course in the Dairy Festival Milk Run in years past. Coach Hicks said Thornton was followed by Christian Palomino, Eli Sellers and Nabian Ramirez.
Coach Hicks said the course his team’s will run on Saturday in Commerce is a new course. He said it is a grass course and is flat with no hills. Coach Hicks said about 25 schools are expected to participate Saturday.
