The cross country team traveled out of state to Charlotte, North Carolina this past weekend to compete in the Wendy’s Invitational. The boys team finished 13th out of a total of 31 teams and the girls team finished 20th out of a total of 29 teams at the race. Michael Smith finished 5th overall in the large pool of runners with a time of 15 minutes and 44 seconds in the 5000 meter race. Smith had an incredibly impressive run, with the lowest time out of all the boys on the team. Sarika Temme-Bapat finished 55th overall with a time of 20 minutes and 11 seconds in the 5000 meter run. She finished with the fastest time for the girls team. The team has two meets left in the season that are guaranteed. The possibility of having another meet depends on whether or not they qualify for state. Their next meet is the Coachwood Invitational in Gainesville, GA.
