The meet held Saturday, September 7 at NF cross country course wasn’t the hot ticket over the weekend when it comes to the various meets around the state that day. However, even with two teams cancelling at the last minute, the North Forsyth men’s and women’s team had a competitive battle with the Walkertown high school Wolf-pack. The schools split wins with the Viking women besting the Wolf-pack ladies for the first place.
Jasmine Romero finished second behind a game Alexandra Ott, from Walkertown, but managed to best her personal best in the 3.2 mile race by seconds. Erika Rodas, who was North’s top finisher for North at the city county meet, took third place in a new personal best time. Overall the Viking ladies took 5 of the 7 medals and a plaque to boot.
The boys lost their bid for a meet title; however they didn’t make it easy for the Wolf-pack men. Andy Romero finished in first place in a personal best time, but the Wolf-pack did just that and ran in pack formation taking the next four places, giving them a 10 point spread. North men produced multiple personal records for the course.
