Cougars Cross Country ran at Darlington Middle School for the Darlington Carnival CC meet on Oct 5. With the cooler temperatures most of the runners ran a personal best time. The varsity boys team were short two runners due to illness so they were not able to accumulate a team score. Tyler Scites led the boys with a time of 20:24 breaking his best time by over a minute. Tyler placed 94 out of 222 runners. Next in the line up was Hans Gabriel who also broke his record with a time of 21:40 placing 141. Bryan Hiers ran 22:52 and placed 175. Nathan Erwin ran 24:18 and placed 195.
Willis Stivender had another outstanding run smashing his previous time by two minutes. He completed the race in 29:08 and placed 154 out of 160 runners in the JV race.
