The Saline Girl’s Cross Country Team competed in the Pre-Regional Race, also known as the River Rat Open, this past Friday. This event was a chance to get ready for the SEC Championship Meet which will be held this Thursday, October 20th at Hudson Mills Metro Park. Glancing back at the River Rat Open, Saline won the event with a team total of 43. Saline outscored the runner-up team, Farmington Mercy, by 36 points. This was an exciting race for many of the girls because 30 runners had season personal records, and 9 of the racers had all-time personal records. Congratulations to Elianna Shwayder who was the individual champion for this race, running a time of 19:04. The Hornets had 7 runners in the top 16 and 13 in the top 28. Also in this race, five of the varsity runners finished within one second of each other (20:03-20:04.) Great teamwork!
