Harper placed three runners in the top five to storm its way to first place in the 1-A varsity girls’ division of the Richard Romo Cross Country Classic held Saturday, Sept. 21, on the campus of the University of Texas at San Antonio.
The Ladyhorns won their division at last year’s meet, as well.
Sydney Collins clocked in at 13:20 for third place, with Hope Dillon coming in fourth (13:25) and Payton Reid taking fifth (13:27).
Meanwhile, the boys’ team took sixth place, with Drew Stracke taking 10th position in a time of 19:08.
“There were a lot of positives and momentum built as we head toward the end of September,” said HHS head coach Will Reid.
The Longhorn squads will participate in action Saturday, Sept. 28, at Fredericksburg High School.
