Congrats to the Clinton boys and girls cross country team for each finishing 3rd in the TCC! Last year both boys and girls teams were fifth in the league and so it is great to see improvement! Congrats to the following runners for earning conference honors: Alissa King, Makayla Fletcher, Emma Hampel, Shianne Muessig, Nate Chavez, Noah Smith, Eric Briggs and Lucas Crumb.
The girls were edged out by Adrian Madison with a score of 80 for Clinton and 79 for Madison. It was a close race as only a couple of seconds in a few different spots could have changed the outcome of the race, and in the end, the league standings. As it stands, Sand Creek won the league, Madison was in second and Clinton was in third.
