Cross Country: Tigers triumph at Pine Island


Another week of training and the move from the Applejack Invitational to the Pine Island Invitational allowed the Farmington boys cross country team to go from last place to first place in a span of two meets.

After finishing 14th out of 14 teams despite running well at the competitive Applejack Invitational in Lakeville, the Tigers placed all seven of their runners in the top 17 en route to a 40-63 victory over runner-up Rochester Lourdes Thursday at Pine Island.
