Freshman Makenna Kalisz leads the group in cross country's meet versus Richmond Burton.

Girls cross country team faced a tough loss Tuesday against Richmond Burton at the Richardson Corn Maze.

“Our coach wanted us to close the gaps between us and the other girls,” Allison Smith, girls cross country captain, said.

Following these instructions and working hard the girls ended up losing by only eight points. Despite the loss, the team is optimistic about their rising stars.

“We have a very good underclassman team this year,” Smith said. “They aren’t so scared since we have gotten our first meet out of the way and not worrying about failing which was really in our favor.”

According to Smith, with each practice the team gets closer to overtaking their competition. The season is still young and anything can happen. The girls are hopeful this year that they will get better and better each meet not only individually, but also as team.

In their last meeting, the girls loss by 13 points to Richmond Burton.
