  • Fall Sports Preview -- Boys Cross County

     

    Experience levels at cross-country programs are varied across the county.

    South Oldham returns its top six runners from the 3A state meet last year, where it finished sixth.

    North Oldham returns its top two finishers from last fall’s 2A state championship team. But the Mustangs have to fill several other spots.

    And Oldham County loses its top five runners from the 3A state meet and will have to find new runners to fill those shoes.
