Move over, Energizer Bunny, as you now have competition with the Bulldog cross country teams.

On Friday, August 11, the student-athletes took to the track to raise money for shoes, shirts, and other gear for their 2017 competitive season. And, they kept going and going and going. The runners participated in four 28-minute runs, accumulating 213.625 total miles and topping their 2016 mark by over seven miles. The first official meet for the team is set for August 31 at Lyon College in Batesville. The team will host its annual meet at the Bald Knob Country Club on October 24.
