RED OAK — The boys and girls Southwest Valley cross country team travelled to Red Oak Thursday, Sept. 7.

Despite the conditions, everyone from Southwest Valley ran extremely hard and preformed well,” Southwest Valley cross country coach Josh Sussman said. “Mazzy Hummel and Trent Newton paced the girls and boy’s teams with times of 25:38 and 23:16. I really enjoyed watching members of the boys and girls teams cheer each other on during difficult races.”
