Poplarville--Matt Horsley's 2nd place finish led the Maroon Tide to a 4th place at the District X-C meet held at


Running next was Kevin Wilkerson,Austin Ard,Terrance Freeman, Sam Talavera, and Aaron Dusang .
Matt and Austin ran season best times on the toughest course of the season.

"We were disappionted with our place at District but with Jake Polderman not running because of a groin injury,
we knew we would be fighting for 2nd place." Coach Todd said.

The Lady Tide finished 3rd with 7th grader Sarrah Blackwell running the girls fastest time of the year while
finishing 4th. Following was Charlotte Shoemake, Rachel Smith,Hannah Purvis, Gelsey Guerra, Kelsey Leonard,
Lyndsey Cole, Katie Griggs, and Emily Denney.

" Caroline Cooper was running in 4th p[lace with only about 300 yards to go when she started going down.
Her Dad helped her across the finish line which disqualified her and that is OK, at least she was OK after the race,
she just ran out of oxygen. But, with her 4th place , we would have won District," Todd stated.
