A year ago, only one team stood between the Highlander Boys Cross Country team and the SCISA AAA State title. With the motivation of nearly reaching their ultimate goal fresh on their minds, the Heathwood team heads into the 2019 season with greater experience and a plan to continue to grow the program that has become one of the state’s elite.
Coach Cindy Scannella returns a host of veteran runners, including All-State performers Neb Sneath and Hugh Willcox, as well as All-Region performer Robert Golden. The roster features several other athletes who will look to push into the top seven for meets, with the kind of healthy in-house competition that every contender needs.
The season schedule will have the Highlander battle-tested against the state’s top private and public school teams, opening with the Skyhawk Invitational on August 24th. Heathwood will host the annual Highlander Invitational on October 2nd, before once again hosting the State Championship meet on November 2nd.
