Multiple Teams · XC Scottsboro Invitational


Cross Country competed this Saturday, September 22 at the 2018 edition of the Scottsboro Invitational in Scottsboro, AL. Close to 60 schools participated at this meet. As many of you know, this is a very important event, as it is our “pre-sectional” meet. Every team from our section championship/state qualifying meet was there. Those teams are as follows: Scottsboro, Lawrence County, Arab, Guntersville, Brewer, Russellville, Ardmore, West Point, Madison County, and East Limestone.  View photos  (Photo Cred: Xing) More on Vidigami.

There was a slight hint of coolness in the morning breeze today, that later transformed to a typical hot Alabama morning. The Randolph Raiders were ready to run their second meet this week.

Highlight: The Varsity Boys team came with the correct mindset to the meet. The boys managed to defeat almost all rivals from our section! They were just 1 point behind Lawrence County.
