Members of the White County High School cross country team have spent a great deal of the summer preparing for the coming season and many have turned up that training since completion of the TSSAA mandated dead period.
Both Morgan Voyles and Alex Stover attended the Appalachian State Cross Country Camp held mid July on the school’s campus located in Boone, North Carolina. The duo ran approximately 40-45 miles for the week.
The following week, the two were joined by Hunter McCoy and attended another camp. This one was held at Standing Stone State Park in Hilham. The trio ran an impressive 60-65 miles during their training at the camp.
The team, under the direction of Coach Mark Voyles, has now began group workouts in preparation for their season.
Coach Voyles says he is excited about the training the team has put in their season and is anticipating a great season for both the Warriors and the Warriorettes.
The team meets and works out at the WCHS track as well as out on the Voyles’ Farm, which is the site for the Back Yard Invite, a cross country race that was first ran there last season. This season, the Voyles’ farm will be the site of the region race, as voted by the member schools.
The team will have their first preseason meet August 23rd in the Cookeville Jamboree.
