After the race, Coach Furr said, “I am really proud of our kids’ effort today on a very challenging course. This is one of those races where you grow and learn from it. I have no doubt that our kids will come back to work this week and continue to get better.”
The Blue Flame will run at Wren High School for the final time this season on Thursday October 15th.
