Halifax cross country has challenging finishes / October 07, 2018
The Halifax County High School cross country teams had challenging finishes in a meet at Patrick County last Tuesday, as the boys were sixth and the girls fourth.

Franklin County won both sides of the Patrick meet.

“We didn’t quite get the same results that we got last week at Martinsville, but we knew that we were going to have a little fall off as a team. This course was a bit tougher and we put them through some pretty tough work at the end of last week. Still the team put in a solid effort on a rather difficult course,” said coach David Riddle.

“We are at the point that our main focus is preparing them for the postseason. We have our last district meet next week, and will see a few strong Dogwood District teams there. We follow that up with the Danville Metro where we will see some more brand new faces. Those events should help us as we move toward Districts and Regionals,” said Riddle.

James Harlow was 25th in 21:21.59 and Will van Opstal ran to a 27th place effort in 21:32.,20.

Abby Casen ran 21st in 26:58.12 and Ella Morrison was 25th in 28:17.03.
