XC: Clearwater Invitational Recap

by Taylor Eldridge

Ah, finally…the start of the 2009 cross country season. Things were kicked off tonight with the Clearwater Invitational, which featured plenty of different races: Open races for the boys and the girls and then 2-mile races for Senior/Junior and Sophomore/Freshman divisions.
