The 2019 XC season came to an end Saturday as we cheered on senior Adam Moster and sophomore Lily Pinckley as they competed at the Lavern Gibson Championship Cross Country course in Terre Haute for the State competition. Although we can say the weather was MUCH better than last weekend, it was still a bit chilly and windy. Adam stepped up to the line first at 1pm with 24 other teams and individuals joining him. (214 in all). Adam was among some incredible competition and finished in the top half of the race, right at the 100th spot with a time of 16:54. 45 minutes later, it was Lily’s turn. 205 ladies were ready to start the race when the connon went off. Lily fought all the way through the finish line and placed 63rd with a time of 19:24. Very proud of these two and thank all the teammates and fans that were able to make the trip to Terre Haute to cheer them on. It was an amazing 2019 XC season and I am sad to see it come to an end, but it was exciting yesterday to hear the underclassmen already talk about their goals for next season. Thanks to everyone for all their support throughout the season.Greensburg’s Brenner Hannah was 37th.16531Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Lisa Gausman.
