SBP Saints Cross Country qualifies for state meet

Fourteen students at St. Bernard Prep recently qualified for the state cross country meet during the 1A-3A Section 3 meet at Cold Springs High School. Runners were divided into 1A-3A Races.

Runners qualified two ways. Every athlete from the top three teams in each race qualified, while individual with the best times also reached state. St. Bernard Prep finished third in the boys and girls competition.

Individually, in the girls 1A-2A race, Ayleanna Mami placed third in the competition and was among the top five girl finishers.

St. Bernard’s Will Faulk took fifth in the boys completion to qualify.
Cross Country Coach, Jeff Taylor, is elated at his young team’s performance this year. “We have had a great season, and look forward to the growth of the cross country program,” he said. “Cross Country is an individual as well as team sport that is a lifetime sport.”

The Saints will participate in the state meet on November 14 at Indian Mounds Park in Oakville, AL.
