Landrum girls dominate Woodruff Cross Country meet

Published 9:28am Friday, September 6, 2013

Landrum girls’ cross country team captured a perfect score of 15 at the Woodruff Cross Country meet Wednesday, Sept. 3.

The team earned this score after its team members captured places first through sixth. In cross country, only the scores for the top five finishers on the team are typically used. If there is a tie between teams, the scores for their sixth and seventh runners may be used to break the tie.

The top six finishers, in order of how they finished, were Paige Herbst, Savannah Bengston, Laura Ford, Grace Furman, Sarah Cash and Elizabeth Walter. Landrum was the only 2-A team; the others – Woodruff, Broome, Union, Laurens and Clinton – are all 3-A or 4-A teams.
