Cross country runners on the ridge during the meet this year at Chantilly Farms.

At the State Cross Country championships at Great Meadow in The Plains in Northern Virginia, both the boys and girls teams finished third, continuing a streak of finishing third or better in the event.

To answer questions on why I haven’t had any photos of the state race at this year, I was coming off a busy week and the media outlet that pays my bills decided to give me a rest.

Our congratulations to the teams and our thanks to Roger Mannon and Cynthia Saunders for providing information on the outcome.
