WSHS Cross Country Compete at State Meet

Coach Charles Carroll talking to the boys before the start of the race.

For the second time in 2 years, the WSHS Tiger cross country team finished in the top 10 at the LHSAA State Meet held on the campus of NSU in Natchitoches. Racing in mud, rain, cold and wind, the worst conditions ever seen at the state meet, the Tigers finished 8 th out of 30 schools represented in the 2A race. They were led by Senior Tyler Hight who finished 11 th overall in field of 160+ runners. Hight was followed in order by junior Cole DeBusk, senior Kaleb Hemphill, senior Edward Teal, junior Jailyn Carter and junior Brandon Florence.

This team had the top 2 finishes in program history after finishing 7 th at last year’s state meet. Congratulations to these young men for an outstanding year and particularly to the 3 seniors: Kaleb Hemphill, Tyler Hight, and Edward Teal.
