Prescott’s Lady Cubs and Lady Wolves competed in the district cross country meet Saturday, November 3rd at Prescott High School.
The Lady Cubs won and defended the district title (of 6 years straight), by battling and holding off nemesis rival Genoa Central in a very tightly contested race by a mere 5 points! This was the first time all season that Prescott has beat Genoa Central.

I would like to thank the many people who helped by volunteering their time to make this a successful meet! We had many parents, students, and supporters as spotters, finish line workers and timers/recorders, booster club, Don Still and crew from Hope Runner’s Club, and Jeff Butler, who maintained our course all season and prepared it for the meet!
Prescott’s Lady Wolves will complete their season next Saturday, November 10th in the 3-A State Meet, which will be held at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs. The girls compete at 1:15.
