LINDALE — The Sulphur Springs boys took fourth place in tight varsity competition at the recent Lindale cross country race.

“We ran hard and pretty well,” said Sulphur Springs head cross country coach Andy Holt, “We got fourth place right behind Marshall, Canton won the boys division. We know where we stand in district, it will be close between us and Marshall. We finished two points behind them.”
Holt said the team is gearing up for the Oct. 29 district race in Hallsville.
“Running this well at Lindale will help us. The course at Lindale was pretty hilly. Because the boys run three miles or 3.1  miles, so they had to go up the hills twice. It was pretty slick and wet in places, but not too bad. It was challenging,” Holt said.
Preston Weaver got first place on the team, fifth in the race and Micah Hampton was 16th, narrowly missing being in the Top 15 medalists. Megan Massey did take 15th to earn a medal in girls competition and finished as the top racer on the girls team.
“It was encouraging to see Megan run well and get a medal,” Holt said. “Andrew Wallace came back after and illness and finished fourth on our team, he usually gets second. He is still working to get back to full strength after being sick.”
The Sulphur Springs team will run  Friday in Hallsville as they get a preview of the district course.
“This is a big race for us. We get to see how run on the same course they will use at district. This is the first time we’ve run in Hallsville,” Holt added.
