Varsity Cross Country · SHS Cross Country Takes 5th at First Meet


On August 18th in Effingham, the Statesboro High’s Boys Varsity team took 5th place out of 8 teams in their first Cross Country meet of the season. Coach Palmer was hoping to at least finish in the top 3, and he is looking for improvement on the boys’ times. Congrats to Noah Caplinger for finishing in 1st place by 25 seconds! This is Noah’s first ever high school win in Cross Country. The girls’ team got rained out and they could not compete. Coach Palmer is excited to see the girls compete and to finish with record times. The next meet will be Thursday, September 1st, in Brooklet.
