Panther Creek, Green Hope win Tri-Nine titles
October 26, 2011Tri-Nine Conference
CARY - Panther Creek cross country coach Rusty Jenkins had started to add up the numbers, but put the piece of paper away before he could finish his calculation. He was too nervous to find out whether or not his team had edged Cary for the Tri-Nine Conference boys cross country championship.
So he waited till the announcement was made at the end of meet held at WakeMed Park.
No such anticipation surrounded the girls cross country championship, where Green Hope placed 11 runners in the top 15 to win its fourth straight girls conference title. The Lady Falcons had 20 points, far ahead of second-place Panther Creek's 79.
Jenkins' wait was rewarded with something that hadn't been said before: his Catamounts were the boys cross country champs -- and by just five points over the runner-up Imps.
Panther Creek's win also snapped a nine-year boys cross country championship reign by Green Hope.
