Lady Raiders Blister Warpath Invitational XC Course

On a warm sunny day in Canton, the Girls Cross Country team competed in the 23rd Annual Warpath Invitational. Hosted by Cherokee High School at Boling Park on Saturday, September 16, 2017, the Invitational featured 30 High School teams from across North Georgia.

Every Lady Raider, all 25 of them, posted a season best time on the fast course.

Freshman Elle Mezzio was the first Lady Raider to finish in the Varsity division. Her 19:40 time was 31st out of the field of 200. Other top performers were Junior Elizabeth Smith, Sophomore Celine Al-Noubani, as well as Freshmen Murphy Barja and Allison Leffler
 
With four of the top seven finishers hailing from the Class of 2021, Head Coach Isaac Seals pointed out, "This is a very young, but competitive, team. We are just getting our lineup healthy and together."  
 
Ga Milesplit is also taking notice as they called out the Lady Raiders on their watch list as a potential future Top 10 team in Class AAAAA.
