On Monday, Sept. 11th the YME cross country teams ran at one of their larger meets of the year. Marshall hosted a 17 team Invitational with over 460 runners at Independence Park. “This was a good meet for us. We are improving, our runners are starting to gain more confidence in their running abilities and are beginning to run with more focus. We were pleased with our runners efforts and performances. Rory Shackleford had a really great race in a strong field of runners.” Coach Ford.
