The Ritchie County High School and Middle School boys claimed first place in both races during Tyler Consolidated’s “Stormin’ the Castle” cross country meet on Saturday, Sept. 3.

“This has been the most challenging race of the season due to the terrain,” said Coach Holli Vaughan.  “It doesn’t matter how fast the runner is for the hills of Tyler.  It matters how mentally strong, how much determination and grit each one has to compete the difficult course.”
