Armuchee boys win at hom
Darlington’s boys and girls cross country teams ruled the day at the Region 7-AA meet at Darlington Thursday afternoon but Floyd County schools also showed well as Model, Armuchee and Coosa also advanced both their boys and girls squads to next week’s state cross country meet.
Darlington had runners finish in first and second in both the girls’ and boys’ race, but it was the girls’ team who truly impressed — placing eight runners in the top 10 to dominate the competition and claim first place in the area championship
