Cross country is all about running fast. But it’s easy to forget there’s such a thing as too fast. “Hearing the (6-minute, 30-second fire mile) was kind of like, ‘I know I went out too fast. I know I’m not going to keep this pace,’ ” said Sevier County senior Skye McCarter. “Then I heard him count off 17th and I was shooting for top 10. It just wasn’t my day.” (via www.themountainpress.com)

The seniors, they’ll end up running it seven times. The more you know, the better you can race it to the best you can.” (via www.themountainpress.com)

Last season’s race saw Bolton complete the three-peat as they literally ran away from the field, again, comfortably winning by 26 points over Arlington. The Lady Wildcats only lost one runner from last year’s squad and will make their attempt at number four. However, a week after last year’s Region 7-AAA race, Bolton was bested by the Lady Tigers of Arlington at the state meet. Arlington returns it’s entire squad plus a few additions. Is the tide about to turn? Will 2014 see a different team walk away with the championship plaque? Who will be there other two teams to automatically qualify for state?
Arlington has owned the region 7-AAA meet the past two years, claiming the titles in ’12 and ’13 with scores of 28 and 21 respectively. They will now try, for the first time, to accomplish the “three-peat. The defending champs will not have it easy, since they lost three from last year’s championship squad. Meanwhile, Bartlett has been on the rise and looks to put a stop to Arlington’s run. It’s been 12 years since they last held the title, will this be the group that reclaims it? Who will fill that final spot for the state meet? Bolton and Hardin County could be the deciding factors there, or will another team spoil the party?
