The boys and girls cross country teams from Landrum High School are getting a jump on defending their state titles, heading next week to Clemsons Universitys Cross Country Camp.

The teams will be attending the camp July 11-16. The camp is a continuation of the teams off-season conditioning program.

Last fall, the girls and boys teams from LHS won the S.C. Class A/AA state championships and they are in the midst of what appears to be a small dynasty.

The boys team is the two-time defending state champion with titles won in 2008 and 2009. The LHS girls team was state runner-up in 2008 and won the championship last year.

Both teams return several top performers from last season and have added depth with newcomers. The teams are under the tutelage of head coach Jeremy Darby and assistant coach Dr. Todd Walter.

For the past two years the motto for the LHS teams has been 14:59, meaning that their 15 minutes of fame isnt over yet.&bsp; Both teams continue to feel this way about the upcoming 2010 cross country season that begins this fall as well.
