The Clintonville Trucker varsity cross country team competed at the New London Bulldog Invite on Saturday, Sept. 15, facing off against 12 other schools at Hatten Park.
The Clintonville cross country season consists of many of the same locations as previous years. For this year’s Bulldog invite, one of the goals set for the Clintonville runners was to improve upon their individual previous year performance. As the season progresses the athletes prepare and improve for the end of season Conference, Sectional, and State races.
Good individual efforts were given by Clintonville’s runners on the Bulldog course.
