Cosby’s Cross Country teams dominated the Conference 3 Meet with both the girls’ and boys’ teams taking first. Coach Averill said that the team had a chance to repeat the performance at the Region 6A South Meet today at Great Meadows Park – if certain runners step up and perform as expected. Well, that is exactly what happened – the Region 6A South trophies and bragging rights are ours!!!
As I write this article, the team is heading back to Cosby on I95, in a school bus. Cross Country is hard enough on the mind and body, without a 3 hour bus ride TO the meet. But as the following results show, our runners persevered. Not only did both teams win the Region 6A title, we had SIX runners selected to the “All Region” Team – voted on by other coaches in the region. To be considered, a runner has to finish in the top 15. Cosby’s All Region representatives are: Girls = Rachel Northcutt (#1 and Region Champion) Jordan Elam (#4), Ashley Burleson (#13) / Boys = Trey Burleson (#4), Grant Northcutt (#6), and Conner Doyle (#13).
As coach Averill said in a text to me, “They ran very well today – they made Cosby Proud!”
CONGRATULATIONS – ON TO STATES!!!!
