Highland Harriers Earn Early Season National Ranking
Highland Community College women’s cross country coach Tom Bond has been notified that his team has moved into the early season national rankings at 21st place. “I’m really happy for the girls because the team has endured several early injuries. We have not run these early meets as a full squad and probably won’t until Emporia in three weeks. With the injuries, we have had to find new methods of training and really adapt and overcome in a variety of ways. This is different for the girls and me as well. This is a group of individuals who are very determined and hard working, which is reflected in the national ranking. Now, if we can get healthy and stay healthy, we will get faster as the season progresses,” Bond stated
Scottie team members, except for one, are all within the local recruiting area: Courtney Armon, (Farmington, MO). ), Monica Garcia, (Topeka), Jen Hall, (Carbondale), Skylie Hughes, (St Joseph, MO), Kalli Morland (Louisburg), and Syvannah Williams, (Leavenworth). The next meet for the women is Saturday, September 13, at Central Missouri University, Warrensburg, MO.
