Eastbrook Cross Country Dethrones Grant County Dynasty!!!
This is a big deal. The last time a school other than Oak Hill claimed the top spot of the Grant 4 cross country world was 17 years ago (or, as my kids so affectionately put it… “back in the 19’s” – when they think we drove horse and buggy or had only three channels on a black and white TV). But this past Tuesday, the Varsity Men’s Cross Country team did something they KNEW they could do. They put together some incredible personal efforts to give their team a nine point victory over the perennial favorite.
The last time someone else received the Grant 4 trophy, many of our current runners weren’t even born (and if they were, they weren’t running 5k’s in 16-18 minutes). Mere congrats are not enough for this accomplishment but since a VERY small number (if any) of these readers could have encouraged you throughout your entire race on Tuesday (because we couldn’t keep up), CONGRATS!!! is the best we can offer. You guys did a FANTASTIC job and we are all proud of you!
