Cross country runners find their stride at first MLL meet

The first Mother Lode League cross country meet of the season was held Wednesday in Sonora. 

SONORA – For the first time all year, the six Mother Lode League cross country teams all stood at the same starting line and eyed the same finish line.

For some runners, Wednesday’s race at Sonora’s Wildcat ranch was the first race of their running career. For others, the 3-mile race was nothing more than a walk in the park. But at the end of the day, all six teams are chasing a league championship, and this was the first step in that direction.
