GREENEVILLE – Washburn senior Emery Coffey ran third among 26 runners in the Vallie View Invitational cross country meet here Thursday, October 1.

Her time of 27:25 was slow compared to her times earlier this season. Coach Justin Acuff said there was a reason.

“It was a very tough course and the times reflected that,” he said.

In the boys meet, Caden Atkins finished 12th of 46 runners in a time of 22:33. Ethan Helton was 24th with a time of 25:24.

The high school runners will compete in the Trailblazer Invitational at Daniel Boone High School in Johnson City Saturday, October 10. It will be the last meet of the regular season.
