The Boys Cross Country team competed in the 24th Annual Warpath Invitational in Canton on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Hosted by Cherokee High School at Boling Park and boasting great running conditions, the Invitational featured 28 High School teams from across North Georgia.
Senior Erick Ramirez was first across the finish line for the Raiders with a time of 17:16. The fast reputation of this flat course held true as 23 Raiders set Personal Season Bests. Head Coach Zach McKeone was very happy. "It's a fast course, and we ran fast with 12 runners under 20 minutes. Ramirez finally looked like the Senior runner that I expected and that will make a big difference in our team score going forward. And Cody Kaplan once again left it all out on the course, or at least on the finish line," McKeone chuckled.
The next event for the Raiders is Saturday, September 22 when they travel to Cartersville to run at the Wingfoot Classic at Sam Smith Park.
