Varsity cross country hosts lone home meet
The Switzerland County boys and girls varsity cross country teams hosted their only home meet of the season last Tuesday, August 27th — and although the teams are small in number, they are making great strides.
Coach Meganmarie Dennis said that there were two Pacers competing in the boys race: freshman Nathan Furnish finished eighth overall in a time of 21:25; and junior Zack Stout ran a time of 29:01 to finish in 21st place.
In the girls race, Switzerland County had three participants: sophomore Alisha Detmer bested her personal record time by 32 seconds to finish second overall in a time of 22:05; while freshman Gracie White placed third overall in a time of 23:36. Senior Allison Detmer also had an impressive race, finishing sixth in a time of 26:09.
