The Wellsboro Boys and Girls Cross Country teams capped the 2018 season at the PIAA District IV Championships at Bloomsburg University on Thursday, October 25.
The Lady Hornets finished 11th overall with 296 places in the Class AA girls race and the boys were 9th in the Class A race with 211 places.
"It was a great day for running in Bloomsburg to finish out the season," head coach John Weiner said. "We had solid and consistent performances from all the Wellsboro runners. I was pleased and very satisfied with the way they attacked the coarse on a very chilly morning. Everyone gave it their best effort in this final race as they have all season long. Six seniors lamented that this would be their last run on this course and they led their teams courageously."
