Cedartown’s cross country team is improving on their times each week, and had one running finish in the Top 10 during a recent race at Foxhall Farms in Douglass County.

Two of the boys runners brought home top 20 medals and one girl.

Elijah Pace ran a 17:26 placing him in fourth place, and Emmanuel Cornejo ran an 18:48 placing 16th place spot.

Melissa Duncan ran a strong race for the girls, running 22:14 placing 15th.

“Several runners had a new personal record after today’s meet,” said head coach Kristen Little. “We are looking forward to our region meet on Oct. 26.”

Last weekend’s race was an im­provement over their previous meet at the Wingfoot Classic in Cartersville.

First for the Cedartown boys team was Jason Blankenship running an 18:05 placing 48th out of 296 racers.

For the girls team in past weeks, Holly Duncan ran a personal record of 23:17, placing her 78th out of 264.

“I see state in some of their future, if they continue to work hard,” Little said.
