They began competition on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Cherokee Challenge, and again on Tuesday, Sept. 13 against Cranford.

The GL Cross Country Team traveled to Marlton to open its season at the Cherokee Challenge. The conditions were brutal on the two mile course due to high heat and humidity. While all tried their best, three Highlanders rose to the challenge and earned medals in their events. Freshman Victoria Vanriele won the Freshman Girls race in a time of 12:24.22, twelve seconds ahead of the second place finisher.  Sophomore Evelyn Doskoch placed 20th in her race in a time of 13:25.  Logan Calichman placed 26th in the Junior Boys race in a time of 10:49.07.  

Next up, the team competes Saturday, September 17 at the Thompson Park Class Meet in Jamesburg.
