COLUMBUS, Mississippi — The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science cross country team raced with over 1000 other runners at the Saltillo XC Invitational on Sept. 21.

The team set a number of records but took home no awards. Luke Bowles placed 9th and set a personal record with 18:18. The following students also set a personal record: Chandler Bryant (19:38), Matthew Dunn (22:03), Niyah Troup (30:16) and Chloe Jackson (30:43).

"Our top six runners all ran their best,” Bowles said. “You can't get any better than that.”

Season Bests were Bryce Harrison, who placed 6th at 18:04, Colby Brown with 20:35 and Cameron Wright with 21:23.

"With this being the meet with the most hills and turns, I think we did really well,” Dunn said.

The cross country team’s next meet is set for 8 a.m. in Pontotoc on Sept. 28. To see a complete list of upcoming meets, click here.
