Lady Pacers win Jac-Cen-Del Invite; boys team has outstanding meet


  It was a great day on Saturday as the Switzerland County Pacer girls and boys varsity cross country teams participated in the Jac-Cen-Del Invitational.

  The girls team won the invitational by posting a team score of 22 in the seven-team field (A perfect team score in cross country is 15 — so that shows just how dominate the Lady Pacer team was).

  The Pacer boys team had enough runners to record a team score, and finished eighth overall — including two individual runners finishing in the top 10.

  The boys were led by Cooper Hon in sixth place with a personal record of 17:53; while Nathan Furnish was right behind, placing seventh with his second fastest time of the season at 17:57.
