Polk County’s men’s cross country team won the Hendersonville High Invite at Fletcher Park Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Cool temperatures and the flattest cross country course our coaches have seen, set the stage for perfect race conditions and big breaks for the Wolverines.

Senior Jacob Collins broke the 17:00 minute mark for the first time in his prep career. Collins (16:53) placed second, behind North Buncombe’s Travis Leppi (16:26).
