Dresden Middle School Cross Country Lions Finish First in Race
DRESDEN (August 20) — The first race of the 2020 cross country season was held Thursday at the Weakley County Adult Basic Education Center, where teams raced one mile. Schools were divided by grade and gender. The top 20 in each race received medals.
For Dresden Middle School, eighth-grader Ellie Poole and sixth-grader Landon Floyd both won first place in their respected races. This was Floyd’s first race in his middle-school career. Poole returned after health issues last season, which caused her to miss all races. She also won against last year’s TMSAA state champion Olivia Underwood of Lake Road. In the seventh-grade girls’ division, Jordan Springstead came in third with a time of 7:11. Alivia Rainey came in fourth place and Alexis Harrison finished in eighth.
Sixth-grader Bailey Warbington finished second in her race at 6:59. In the boys’ eighth-grade race, Brice Rother finished in eighth place at 6:25.
