HUSKIES Jessy Hart (242), Madelyn Neuschwander (240) and Cicely Neuschwander (241) head away from the starting line in the girls' varsity race.

Sweet Home hosted its first truly local cross-country meet in many years Thursday, Sept. 13, at Community Chapel, hosting 18 high school teams and 16 from middle schools.

"Overall it went really well," Head Coach Kambria Schumacher said of the event, which included a barbecue dinner fund-raiser that was well-attended. "A lot of the coaches I talked to were happy and even some athletes told me they enjoyed the course."

It also included three area 5A schools – Lebanon, South Albany and Corvallis, as well as Philomath, Sisters and Newport from the Huskies' own Oregon West conference.
