Cross country had two meets this week. Cleveland finished third overall for both meets, competing against the likes of schools such as Franklin and Wilson. Though wearing masks whilst running is certainly adding an extra difficulty for these long-distance runners, they have trained hard and the work is paying off. Two more meets will take place this week on March 10 and 13. Results for both the past meets and future races can be found at .
