SULPHUR BLUFF — The Sulphur Bluff junior high boys took third place in recent cross country action at Miller Grove.
Chapel Hill and Bland finished ahead of the Bears.
Jacob Watts won the race with a time of 12:01; finishing third with a time of 12:25 was Alberto Serrano. Brennon Seymore came in seventh place with a time of 13:12. Isaac Foley and Turner South rounded out the team with Isaac finishing 23rd overall with a 14:23 finish and Turner finishing 24th overall with a 14:24 finish.
“I was really proud of the boys coming out and performing well at this meet. This meet had different elements that came into play during the race that made it challenging but our boys stepped up and rose to the occasion. Assistant coach Dylan Foster did a really good job helping me out and keeping the times and motivation of the boys up,” said Marshall Moore, cross country coach.
Moore continued, “The boys high school runners did not have enough for a team this week but we had four individuals that showed up ready to run and performed really well. Thomas took third place overall in the JV race with a time of 21:35 seconds. Joseph Granack finished with a time of 26:16. Hudson Northcutt finished with a time of 26:53, and Dillon Huie finished with a time of 33:25. I was really proud of these boys for showing up and competing. It shows heart to come out and compete every week instead of taking the easy way out. This race the elements played a huge role. Ten minutes into the race the bottom fell out of the sky and turned half the race into a mud slide. The boys shifted into four-by-four and finished strong.“
The cross country boys will compete in Mount Pleasant on Sept. 28.
