Reese said one of the reasons why she prefers track is because of scheduling. Track meets are usually during school, while cross country is run on the weekends.
Lowery wins second title
Chandler's Chris Lowery won his second straight cross country title in Class 3A with a time of 16:08. Lowery has five state titles in track. The senior said he started feeling sick Friday night and even before Saturday's race. Lowery said he felt OK running but began to get sick again after the race.
Lowery wanted to best his time of 15:55 from last year but fell a bit short.
Course featured hills, sudden turns
Most of the individual winners Saturday made note of the hilly course at Gordan Cooper Technology Center. The hills make it hard to produce fast times. Competitors also said the sudden turns on the course can take away their momentum.
