OAKWOOD, Ga. - The LaGrange cross country teams competed in the second annual University of North Georgia Invitational. This was the first race for both teams since the Sewanee Invitational on Sept. 6.
The Panther women were represented by Jessica Morton, who showed remarkable improvement in finishing the 5K course in 26:06. The men were led by John Lynch who dropped almost three minutes off his time and finished the 8K course in 32:56.
Lynch was followed by Bill Singleton (34:18), Hiram Haro-Oropeza (34:55), and Asti White (36:16). This was an impressive run for both teams as each runner dropped at least a minute from the previous times.
The Panther teams next race is the Maryville College Invitational on Oct. 4 in Maryville, Tenn.
