HHS Boys Cross Country team placed first at the Kudzu Hills Invitational.
The ranking of Homewood High School boys and girls cross country teams, as well as their members’ individual rankings, has risen this season with a larger team size. On Sept. 29, the boys team placed first at the Kudzu Hills Invitational. Mike Rhody placed first with a time of 16:45 followed closely by teammate Alex Ngei, who finished fifth with a time of 16:58.
Homewood girls finished second overall behind Hewitt-Trussville with Mary Margaret Jackson finishing third at 20:48 and Virginia Givhan finishing ninth at a time of 21:14.
“I truly feel like my runners are in a unique position to gain even more ground on their individual times and their placement as a team,” said HHS Cross Country Coach Lars Porter. “All of them seem to get stronger with each meet, and I can’t wait to see where that leads us.”
