Runners prep for season opener

It’s off to the races for Blue
Nation’s cross country teams.
The Unicoi County High
School Blue Devil and Lady
Devil distance runners are approaching
the start of the regular
season and hopes are high,
according to head coach Gary
Howard.
“We’re looking to improve
over from last year,” Howard
said. “The team has the potential
to finish in the top three of
the conference. This year we’re
going to try to qualify a team for
state.”
The cross country program
is comprised of 19 athletes – 10
Blue Devils, nine Lady Devils.
Out of the members of the
team, Whitley True is the lone
senior on the squad. True, a
three-sport athlete at UCHS,
clinched an individual state
meet berth last season and finished
in the top 30.
