Both Harney and Roush made 1st-team All-Conference on Saturdayâ€™s meet. Harney qualified with a time of 16.24, placing seventh overall and Roush with 18.58, placing third overall.
Many of the Eagles typical girlsâ€™ varsity runners did not run due to injuries, allowing for several JV girls to step up and take their place.
â€śWe gave them a chance to shine in a real varsity race,â€ť said Head Coach Bob Fahl, and they really stepped it up.â€ť
Columbia Cityâ€™s boys placed sixth as a team and the girls came in seventh.
Both cross country teams are back in action Oct. 9 for the Northrop sectional.View more articles in:
