(HILLSBORO) The Jefferson College men’s and women’s cross country teams are in their inaugural seasons and they are getting tastes of success. The women’s team is currently ranked 2nd in the nation among the National Junior College Athletic Association Division III squads, one notch ahead of Mineral Area College. The two Jeffco teams participated last weekend at the Region 16 cross country meets hosted by State Fair Community College at Smith Cotton High School in Sedalia. Jeffco head coach Chris Sandefur says the girls team raced well.
According to Sandefur, three Jefferson County runners have been excelling on the women’s team.
On the men’s side at Region 16, Sandefur says sophomore Dylan Glastetter ran a good race.
The national Division III men’s and women’s cross country meet is set for Saturday November 11th at John Hunt Park in Huntsville, Alabama.
