Coed Varsity Cross Country · Barnhart Invitational Recap


9/29/18

The Cougar Cross Country teams traveled to the Baltimore County Agricultural Center for the Barnhart Invitational, hosted by Dulaney High School on Saturday. After seemingly endless rain throughout the week leading up to the meet, the course was good and muddy. Truly cross country at its finest. The sloppy conditions didn’t slow the Cougars down much, however, as we saw 25 runners set season bests.
