GALLERY: NHS Cross Country Team at Race in Fayetteville (9/5)

While many NHS Cougars were starting their Saturday mornings in early September at a leisurely pace, the Cross Country Team was already up, wearing their uniforms, in Fayetteville, and striding toward a strong day at the races.

Breaking into the season can be tough, but the Cougars have taken on the challenge of the season and pushed forward going the distance.

The Cross Country team can be seen training in the afternoons covering much of the local terrain as they gear up for the later half of their season. This Saturday, the Cross Country Team will be racing at the Atlanta Classic at Clinton Farms in Douglas County.

Check back in to The Prowl and Growl for future coverage of their races.
