It was another warm and also windy day for the harriers at the Smith Center Redmen Invitational. We had 15 race today, and brought home 10 medals. The kids did so well after some hard practices this week on our hills. We are so proud and impressed with their grit and determination! There was some really smart racing strategies and huge improvements across the board. Congratulations, Bulldog XC! Keep up the good work!!
