The East Atchison Cross Country Team is running toward the start of the 2016 season. The first meet will be August 30 at the Maryville Invite. This year’s team is coached by Kurt Sloop.
Eleven runners are on the team this year. This is the first Tarkio/Fairfax co-oped cross country team. The team members have been working on getting into shape. Three runners have competed on the cross country team before and runner Grace Martin placed in districts and went on to state last year. Though it’s a young team, it will be a team to watch this season.
