Chillicothe Boys XC Places 1st At Cameron Invite; Girls 2nd

The Chillicothe Cross Country teams performed in super windy conditions at the Cameron Invitational on Tuesday. It resulted in a 1st place finish for the varsity boys, another overall win for Luke Thompson, and another Runner Up finish for Cain Evans. The varsity girls finished 2nd (N Platte beat Chillicothe by 3 points).

Head coach Jennifer Dickson talked about her team’s ability to battle the conditions, “We haven’t run in wind yet this season, and it’s definitely a game changer! 20 mph nonstop wind is like running with a parachute, so for some of our runners to finish with big PRs today is amazing!”
