Emerald hosted a dual meet with the Wren Hurricanes this evening at the Oasis Farm of Connie Maxwell. For the second consecutive season, the athletes from both teams shared a meal after the race. Coaches David Payne (Emerald) and Larry Clark (Wren) both hope to continue this tradition in the future to teach their athletes about the camaraderie of sport.
A co-ed race was run at 5:45 pm in an attempt to avoid the heat. Wren won both the girls and boys team competitions. Wren’s Seth Sharpe was the first to cross the line for the boys, while Emerald’s Zoe Vickery won her first race on the girls’ side.
