The cross country team competed in the Aubrae Gunderson Invitational meet at the International Horse park in Conyers on Saturday, September 26. Although the rain impeded the runners and the scoring, the varsity girls team finished second behind North Hall. Senior Gracie Griffith led the team with a second place time of 21:19. Freshman Anna Tischer finished sixth place with a time of 21:52, and senior Meredith Fossitt finished fourteenth with a time of 22:57. Even though some of the lead runners from other schools went off course, seniors Anders and Graham Russell led the varsity boys team to a third place finish.

The next APS meet will take place tomorrow at Grant Park, and the APS Championship is on Oct. 7.
