(Whitesburg, GA) — Sophomore Holly Moreland led the way to a Lady Braves runner-up finish at last week’s Region 5-AA Cross Country finals held at McIntosh reserve in Whitesburg.

The meet originally scheduled for Wednesday took place Thursday due to weather delays and Moreland set a new school record with a time of 22:11 breaking the old mark of 22:50 by Lisa Denton in 2010.

The boy’s team finished in third place and both teams have qualified for this Saturday’s GHSA State Cross Country Championships at Carrollton High School.

The boys will run at 1:25 p.m. and the girls at 2:05 p.m.

Admission for the all day event is $5.00 per person. The Brave cross country teams are coached by Thomas Sickman.
