Cross Country Teams Get Seconds

The JDHS cross country teams raced their way to second place finishes at the last regular season meet of the year hosted by Wayne County High School. South Effingham High School won both the boys and girls races.
Junior Joshua Ratliff led the boys team with a 11th place finish in a time of 17:52.80. While freshman Zoie Marchant paced the ladies team with a 3rd place finish and a new school record time of 20:52.10. Marchant broke the school record that was held just four days by junior Riley Walters. Several runners saw personal best or season best times at the meet.
