NCHS Cross Country Team Thrives

By Issac Prather

The Nicholas County Cross Country Team won the Braxton Invitational on September 30.

The top 5 runners from Nicholas were Issac Prather (1st), Logan Kelbaugh (6th), Rylee Nicholas (8th), Levi Brake (9th), and Alex Fennell (11th).

Since July 31st the Cross Country Team has been practicing Monday through Friday for an hour to an hour and a half. Their diligence has definitely paid off.

In an interview this season, Coach Jennifer Gatewood said, “I thought the team would do okay at the very first meet, but they won against some real tough competition. I knew at that point the team had a lot of potential.”

The team is hopeful the they will see additional success the season.
