Miller leads Husky girls in first big cross-country competition
September 21, 2022
Sweet Home's cross-country teams got their first crack at the 5,000-meter distance Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Northwest Classic, held at Lane Community College, the site of the state cross-country meet.
Although the heat wasn't particularly excessive, the dust was, Coach Dave Martin said of the meet, which included 30-plus teams on both the boys and girls sides, including many of the state's large schools and some from out of state.
Since Sweet Home's runners are mostly new to the sport, Martin had them compete in the junior varsity races, which were big fields in themselves.
