FHS Cross Country
District 15/5A
Myers Park in McKinney
Friday, October 21, 2016

The Forney High School cross country teams competed on Friday, October 21 in their 15/5A District Championship Meet held at Myers Park in McKinney. After losing 9 seniors from last year’s team, the Forney Lady Jackrabbits knew this would be a rebuilding season. The top seven varsity girls competing in the district race consisted of 1 senior, 1 junior, and 5 sophomores. Even though this young team placed 4th against some of the state’s powerhouse cross country teams and fell short of a chance to compete in the Region 2 meet scheduled for Saturday, October 29, they competed like the champions they are. Posting four personal records in this race, this young team made the other teams work for their places.
