The Colleton County cross-country team competed in the SCHSL AAAA Lower State Championship on Saturday Oct. 28 in Darlington. The girls team finished in fourth place in the event, qualifying them to advance to the SCHSL AAAA State Championships scheduled for Nov. 4 in Columbia.
The Lady Cougars were led by Grayson Altman, who recorded a personal best in the race (21:23.26) and finished in 12th place. Abigail Altman, racing for the first time in two weeks due to illness, finished just behind her (21:31.09) in 17th position.
