In their only home meet this year, the Cadott cross country team ran well at home Sept. 22, as multiple athletes descended on the Whispering Pines course.
The boys team earned a fourth place finish, with a time of 1:41:51.4, while the girls placed fifth (2:20:32.7).
“…The meet went very well,” said coach Tom Weiss, adding that the course’s hills aren’t steep, but they are long.
