Cross country coach offers upbeat assessment

SoVaNow.com / August 03, 2017
Halifax County High School cross country is back, and the coaching staff offered an upbeat assessment of the squad after the first day of practice Monday.

“Coach (Melanie) Saunders and myself were pleased with day one of practice. We had around 20 runners out. A good chunk were veterans but we had a few newcomers as well,” said coach David Riddle.

Halifax expects to have more harriers on the scene as the fall season approaches.

“We expect to increase the size of the team by double this size or maybe even a little more as we go through the next week and a half. We still have several on vacation and a few gearing up for Dixie Boys and Legion ball this week as well,” Riddle said.

Cross country lost some key members of the team last year, but the Comets return quite a few of the top seven runners and many that were right on the cusp last year as well.

“And if tonight was any indication then the new group is going to have people pushing for some of the top spots as well,” said Riddle.
