The lone home meet for Greene County cross-country is scheduled for this Thursday, Sept. 12 at Spring Lake State Park northwest of Grand Junction. Middle school action is set for 4 p.m. with high school races starting at 4:45 p.m.

Jeff Lamoureux is in his third season heading the girls and boys cross-country programs at Greene County HS. Improving numbers and performances were among the goals, and the Rams are making progress in both areas. “We look to improve and make that step forward. One of the goals I had starting was to build numbers and get kids willing to come out. It is a little bit of a hard sell. We’re asking them to run over three miles as hard as they can and put themselves through agony for 20-plus minutes, and like it!”

The coach reports a total of 30 (16 boys, 14 girls) are out, the most since he’s been head coach.
