Bearcats and Lady Cats coach Yvette Greene said she was proud of all her Bearcats and Lady Cats runners Saturday.

“All of our runners have been working hard in practice and it paid off with their Saturday times,” she said.

The Bearcats and Lady Cats will return to competition Saturday when they travel to Tallahassee to take part in the Godby High School Cougars and Lady Cougars Invitational Run, which draws strong teams from Georgia and Florida.

“I look for our runners to improve their times from week to week,” Greene said. “They are all doing a good job every day in practice.”
