The Mexico High School Cross Country Team competed in the final race of the year on Saturday, November 6, 2023 in Columbia at the state meet.

As a coach it was about a good of an ending as you can ask for.

You try to train the athletes to run their best at the state meet and when it works out it equals happy coach and happy runners.”
