Both the boys’ and girls’ teams won first place Saturday at the Florida Horse Park Invitational middle school 3k race in Ocala. There were four boys in the Top 10 , including the 1st overall spot, with a team finish of 25 points, well under the 50 points acquired by the second place team. Four Harriers earned Top 10 spots in the girls’ race as well, with a team total of 28 points, a substantial lead next to the 67 points obtained by the runners-up.
“As these results show, what a great race…even with climbing temperatures!” exclaimed Coach Brian Caplinger.
The Junior Harriers wowed the crowd in the 2k elementary race, with medals for all.
The Hillsborough Harriers’ next appearance will be at the Holloway Park Jamboree in Lakeland on September 24.
