SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- For the first time in Holy Innocents' Episcopal School history, the girls’ and boys’ varsity cross country squads brought home first-place trophies at the same event. The Golden Bears' success took place Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 24, in Macon at the 3rd Annual Run Wild Invitational, hosted by Warner Robbins High School.
The girls scored 42 points, easily outdistancing the second-place squad by 51 points, while the boys tallied 56 points, winning by 37 points. Both squads took the championships among 16 teams.
“I’m so glad this group of kids gets to be a part of Holy Innocents’ history,” Coach Dunn Neugebauer said. “They have battled the heat and the hard courses; today they got their rewards. Hopefully, we can ride this momentum right through the season.”
