Ravenwood's boys cross country team continued to ride its wave of season bests, topping off their third and final road trip with 17 at the Jesse Owens Classic in Alabama. Junior Matthew Rigsby had his best race since the region championship meet his freshman year, hitting 16:30 for 5K. Kevin Frost, Jack Dang, Jack Dellinger, and Carter Myers rounded out the top five as Ravenwood placed 15th out 41 schools in the top Gold division. Nolan McGinnity and David Kertai were 6th and 7th for Ravenwood, who beat region foe Independence by a whopping 100 points.
The JV race was just as exciting as Trevon Miller, Nick Dang, and David Story all ran sub 18:30 to pace the team. Ian Brown, Sai Thatiglota, Thomas Abramson, and John Collin Askew were 4th-7th as Ravenwood finished 9th out of 39 teams.
Both squads will look to continue their improvement at the Mid State Cross Championship meet on October 14 in Dickson.
