Running Eagles open up new season

The Canton Running Eagles competed at the Waxahachie Invitational August 26, battling less than ideal conditions and competing runners during their first meet of the season.

Coach Marta Morgan stated, "I'm so proud of all the runners and their effort and times. The cooler temperature really helped."

The varsity boys started the season off with a first-place team finish out of ten participating teams. Jonathan Bourquin led the way finishing in 7th with a time of 17:57. Wilson Null was 11th in 18:16, Garrett Stapleton 13th in 18:42, Matthew Hook 17th in 18:59, Kevin Nixon 18th in 19:05, and Gage Bullard 25th in 19:17.

In the varsity girls division, Madeline Null finished first overall with a time of 12:39 and Darby Pruitt was 11th in 13:38.
