Eagles News · Cross Country teams earn trip to State!

Today has been a great day for our XC family.  We have had an extraordinary season for many reasons and this is an amazing and wonderful way to begin our postseason. For the first time in TEN years (last time was 2010) BOTH the boys and the girls qualified for State. The guys race was one of the craziest and most competitive races I have seen in 20 years.  There was a double tie (between 1st and 2nd and again between 4th and 5th)  Our boys placed 3rd securing our bid to state. Only 2 points separated 3rd-5th places!  Crazy!  The boys last qualified for State as a team in 2018.
Final boys score
1. Hoover 57
2. Vestavia 57
3. Oak Mt. 76
4. Hewitt Trussville 78
5. Spain Park 78
On the girls side Spain Park made things interesting for us in the last mile, but our ladies were able to keep them at bay with a 9 point lead. Their 4th place finish earned their 2nd bid to State in as many years.
Girls final scores:
1. Vestavia 44
2. Hewitt-Trussville 50
3. Hoover 53
4. OM 104
5. Spain Park 113
