It was the team’s first win of the season and first win since Sept. 14, 2018.

Central cross country excels at Waukon

By Willis Patenaude, Times-Register

The cross country team contributed to Central’s remarkable week in sports, putting in exceptional performances at the Waukon meet Sept. 22, where ribbons were won, personal times were bested and school records fell. 

The high school girls ran in the JV races, a decision that was made “to give all of our runners a chance to run as a group and get a feel for where they are within the group. We thought that could give them a chance to focus on each other and gain some experience toward what we need to work on as a team to be our best down the road in October,” said assistant coach Martha Bauder.
