For the second year in a row the Cowan Girls cross country team earned the right to compete in their regional cross country meet! The ladies ran their way to a 5th place finish on Saturday, October 10, at the Delta Sectional which took place at the Muncie Sportsplex.
Junior Lauren Smith led the way for the team with a strong run to finish as the sixth individual overall. Smith will be competing in her third straight regional meet, and her toughness and determination have played an instrumental role in leading the team there the past two seasons.
Sophomore Brynn Wright ran a very good race and finished next behind Lauren in 7th place.
Sophomore McKenna Minton ran her season-best time to finish 26th. Sophomore Crism Morey ran tough as Cowan’s fourth runner, and senior Aleah Wright ran her season-best time to complete the team.
These five ladies have had very little margin for error this season. Their hard work and willpower to compete has paid off with a second trip to Regionals for the team!
