The 2017 Whiting Warrior Cross Country Season is now underway as the Whiting Cross Country runners now have two meets under their belts. There were some changes this year as Alex Lamp (New K-12 P.E. Teacher/Athletic Director) has taken on coaching cross country for the 2017 season. Coach Lamp has had experience with Cross Country and Track while in college and is excited about being the new cross country coach this season. 

Whiting Cross Country practice began in the early morning on Monday August 14th with about 10 students participating in the first practice (and the number of students keeps growing!) Students worked hard preparing for the first meet in the Riverside area of Sioux City. The first meet took place on Thursday August 25th. Junior High runners couldn't participate in this meet so it was only Boys & Girls Varsity and Junior Varsity High School runners. The course in Sioux City didn't have very many hills so the first meet of the season started off with a much easier terrain for the runners.

Here are the results from the Tuesday August 29th meet in Logan:
