NORRIS – Washburn School’s middle school and high school cross-country teams completed successful meets in separate competitions last week.

Two middle school runners finished in the top ten in their meet. Two from the high school finished in the top 10 in a meet Tuesday, with one of them setting a school record, said Coach Chris Vineyard.

The girls’ high school team also finished fourth in their division among 10 teams.

Braelyn Coffey was sixth in the girls’ middle school run. Ethan Helton was fourth in the boys’ division.

Emery Coffey, the sister of Braelyn, came in 10th in the high school race. Austin Coffman set a school record in the 5K in a time of 20 minutes and 54 seconds. The previous record was 21.12, Vineyard said.

This is the first year for the middle school to compete. Vineyard said the high school has been competing for three years, but this is the first year to field full teams.
