The Morgan High School Cross Country Team started out with a bang at the Premiere Invite held Saturday, Aug. 17 in Tooele. With just a few weeks of practices under their belt, students loaded the bus ready to compete. Coming off a couple years of inconsistency having had multiple coaches, the cross country team has a new coach, Brennan Fuller, who is ready to help them succeed. Coach Fuller is a newer addition to Morgan High School and is excited to establish a program for the students that will help them make and achieve their goals.
So far they are off to a good start as varsity runner Candace Gunn took seventh place for her run of 20:49. Girls JV runner Megan Carter was able to bring in the fifth place medal with a time of 23:38. Boys’ varsity runners Andrew Allen and Cameron Gualco also had great runs, with times of 18:14 and 19:44 respectively. Bringing home the lead in boys JV was Christian McClellan, coming in at 20:50. Way to go Trojans!
For those wanting to support the cross country team, the next race will be the Union Invitational held Aug. 28.
