Once again the Lady Cats were led by freshman Haylee Shultz who finished 3rd with a time of 13:30.20. The Eustace girls race was on a 2-mile course. Sophomore Mattie Bridges was 11th and sophomore Laney Hurst was 12th. Senior Maurie Flecker was 29th. Sophomore Emily Soto was 43rd. Sophomore Makayla Jimmerson was 47th and sophomore Allison Peckham was 51st.

Sulphur Springs Coach Ross Hicks said the Eustace course was out in a field without a building in sight. He said the course also included six hay bales that runners had to jump over. Saturday the Wildcats and Lady Cats will compete at a Commerce meet. It’s the last tune up for the Wildcats before the District Meet on October 26 in Mount Pleasant.
