Elite Girls Finish 2nd / Elite Boys Finish 3rd

Varsity Girls Take 3rd / Varsity Boys Take 9th


Norco, CA  (September 21, 2019) – The top runners  for the Southlake Carroll Cross Country team traveled to Norco, CA to compete at the 39th Annual Woodbridge Cross Country Classic, which features a 3 mile course.  This year’s event featured 52 races and hosted more than 350 teams from around the country.
