Cross Country team ready to compete

By Lily Everett

The NWHS Knights cross country team has been working extremely hard this season! After many miles of practice, each week they are continuing to improve. 

The team members include Lily Herrick, Sher’Asia Mendenhall, Amiyah White, Madison Sissom, Chloe Wooten, Anna Ray, Landree Andrews, Eric Silvers, Elijah Davis and Sawyer Wages. 

Leading the girls this year is Anna Ray while Eric Silvers leads the boys.

When asked about how the season was going, Silvers said, “This season is going very well. Everyone is improving their times, placements, and overall as athletes.” 

The team is coached by Macy Garner who is focused on helping them prepare for the regional meet in Layfayette on November 3. Until then, their next meet is Saturday, October 22. The meet will be hosted by Lakeside. They will run 3 miles as they’ve done for the previous meets. 

The Knights are looking forward to some friendly Webster Parish competition and will continue improving! 

Go Knights!
