The War Eagle Cross-country team lines up at the start while their peers gather around to support them. As the gun is fired, the runners take off. Parents and friends stand around the track, cheering on their team. The War Eagles had their first meet and have done exceptionally well. However, they have lots of room to improve throughout the season. Coach Shaw had this to comment: ” I feel like we are in a great spot for the season and there is always room to improve, but everyone is doing exactly what they need to be doing at this point.”
