Boys fall, girls topple Park View in cross country / September 02, 2019
Halifax County High School boys’ and girls’ cross country split a home meet with Park View Thursday.

The boys lost to the Dragons, 27-31.

“Overall Coach Saunders and I were pleased. Edmunds Park is a tough course and many of our runners had better times this week than last on a flatter course. I think many of our runners got their first meet jitters out last week and we saw them relax more this week,” said coach David Riddle.

“Times were much better on both the guys and girls side. We had people knocking as much as 3-5 minutes off from last week. They are starting to get a feel for where they need to be and what we need to do to get this team back to where it was a few years back,” said Riddle.
