Results for the Bryan Junior High boys and girls cross country teams at the Defiance Early Bird meet last Saturday 8/24/19.

We are unsure about the accuracy of the times reported for these races because upon looking at the course map, it was noted that the 1-mile marker for the junior high course was located in the same place as the 2-mile marker for the high school course, and because the courses for junior high and high school were the same from that point to the finish line, the junior high runners may have actually run 2.1 miles total because they would have run the remaining 1.1 miles that the high school athletes did. Therefore, we think the times recorded for junior high could be up to 45 seconds slower than their actual 2 mile times.
It was a great start to the season for the teams and we are looking forward to the rest of the upcoming races this season.
