For the first time ever, the Lady Lions swept the Independent Middle School League. “I’ve never had a group work harder than this year’s Cross Country Team,” said Horizon Prep Cross Country Coach Jesse Sykes. “The distance for each race was 2 1/2 miles, so we trained them at 5 miles. They worked hard.” Courtesy photo
