10/29/2016 – Sectionals (Edwardsville)
The Foxes had to get up early and be ready to leave by 6:45 a.m. The weather looked to be nice and warm, which wasn’t really what the Foxes were hoping for. The Foxes have been a rough weather running team instead of a fair weather running team this year, with their best races coming during rainy weather. It was going to be another tough meet, but both teams knew what needed to be done to have a chance to advance.
The Lady Foxes would be the first to take to the SIU–Edwardsville Collegiate women’s 5k Cross Country course.

10/18/16 – Benton Invitational
The Foxes hot off of their boys win at the Black Diamond Conference headed into Benton knowing it was going to be a tough meet. The Invitational would be similar to what will see at the Sectional, as far as team competition and as far as number of participants goes.
The first race of the day was the Varsity Boy’s race, the boys coming into the race knew that their main competition would be Olney, Nashville, Herrin and Benton. The Foxes took off fast and quickly made it up the first large hill at the Benton Park. Hunter Braden quickly moved up into the top ten and worked on catching READ MORE …
