The Bearcat and Ladycat Cross Country teams competed today at the Mineral Wells Ram Invitational.  Although the course was long (almost 3 ½ miles instead of 5k), all athletes competed extremely well.  It was truly an amazing day!!  Aledo came close to sweeping the meet, with the Varsity Girls, Varsity Boys, and JV Boys all taking home 1st place finishes!  The JV Boys produced a PERFECT SCORE (15 points), placing 1 – 5, and the Varsity Boys were very close.  The girls races were only 2 miles (actually closer to 2.25 miles), as reflected in their times.  So proud of these athletes – not only the way they compete, but also the way they train!  Results were as follows:
