“Brook Hill Cross Country is quickly becoming a favorite among fall sports,” Coach Ford said. “We are receiving more and more runners (both high school and middle school) come out for the team each year, and the Brook Hill Varsity team travels all over East Texas to compete against some of the best runners in the state. Brook Hill also hosts our very own meet, The American Warrior Run, that winds around the entire campus. We have had 10 athletes compete in the state meet in the last two years, and we fully expect that tradition to continue for the 2017-2018 year.”
The 2016 Brook Hill Cross Country team is already off to a great start. High school and middle school practice has begun, but it is not too late to join.
For the first time ever, Brook Hill is hosting our own meet, the American Warrior Bowl, on August 27th. Not only will we be honoring veterans and hosting a Saturday night football game, but that morning we will host the first Brook Hill cross country meet where athletes will be competing against other schools running around and through the entire campus!
Last year was a great success with five athletes competing at the state meet in Waco, but this year looks just as promising. We’re looking forward to more high school meets, more middle school meets, and a bigger team to represent the Brook Hill Guard. All we need to do now is move our feet and compete.
*Practice begins August 1 from 10-11 a.m. on Monday-Thursday in Herrington Stadium.
