Cedartown’s cross country team got a solid placing in their latest run on the road.

This past Saturday, the Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs took part in the Lion Valley Invitational run in Carrollton, and overall the Cedartown boys finished third out of 15 teams, and the girls finished fifth in their division.

Head coach Richard Shortt said he was proud of their efforts considering what they faced in their run this past weekend.

“The course was a very tough course with lots of winding hills,” he said. “The kids did a real good job of racing the other competitors and the course.”

He added that “overall I’m happy with our progress considering we’re a very young team.”
