On September 15th, Sierra Middle School’s Cross Country runners competed against Cimmarron. The boys ran at Sierra and the girls ran at Cimarron.
In 7th grade, five Sierra runners placed first, second, or third. Two 7th grade boys, Beckett Bacon and Logan Nelson, took first place in their races. Joe Ponder, an 8th grader, also took first place in his race.
“One of the things we celebrated at practice this week is the overall improvement of all the boys. Almost 100% of them improved their times from the last race, the few that didn’t kept their times steady from the previous race,” Catherine Worsham, the boys Cross Country coach, said.
Sierra Middle School has upcoming meets on September 22 and September 23. The meet on the 22nd is against Sagewood Middle School. The meet on the 23rd is against Mountain Ridge Middle School. Both of the meets start at 4:00 after school.
