(Elk Horn) Practice got underway Monday for the Exira-EHK girls and boys cross country teams. The team will be made up of three athletes on the boys side and either six or seven runners on the girls team.
Coach Terry Wiesenborn says the team is getting introduced to some shorter runs early on in practice. The girls cross country team was a state qualifier last year and has four members returning for this season. Athletes back from last year's state experience include Gabbie Bintner, Savannah Hayes, Emily Copic, and Grace Hoflen.
The team's first meet of the season is tentatively set for September 4th. West Central Valley will be hosting a meet at the 5X80 Golf Course and the team is expecting to run there.
