Individual effort will be the focus of the Peabody-Burns cross-country team in 2012.
The number of athletes competing will preclude the group from running for team results, but that will not stop the efforts of the students out for the sport. The high school team will include one senior, Zach Preheim and three juniors, Lily Harris, Angelica Winsor, and Christian Chastain. Mackenzie Young will represent the sophomore class.
Coach Kim Topham is looking forward to this season which opens with a meet Aug. 30 at Clearwater. The team will have a home meet Sept. 13 at the Topham farm.
“The runners I have out this season are a great group,” Topham said. “I am extremely excited about having them on the team.”
