The Florence Falcons Cross Country team had a great day at the Chickasaw Trails XC meet! We had 15 runners set PRs (personal best records)! Way to go Falcons! With close to 3,000 runners and 109 teams participating, this was one of the largest races we compete in. Our varsity girls’ team looked very strong, with several personal records and an individual overall win! Congratulations to Mary Claire Ridgeway, who once again took the title in the varsity girls division with a new PR of 18:04, a full 25 seconds ahead of the 2nd place female. Our varsity boys had a great day with 8 personal bests, including senior, Grant Brown, who ran an incredible time of 16:46! Our JV boys and girls did an incredible job, most of whom were new to this course. Our JV boys’ team was led by 8th grader, Reed Trapp who came in 17th place out of 411 runners participating in this race! As the weather gets cooler, expect to see more times dropping like the fall leaves! These mighty Falcons will be showcasing their talents again next Saturday in Scottsboro, Alabama.
