2011 Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championships

At Cabell Midland High School - Ona, WV

November 19th, 2011

 

Over 1100 young athletes, as young as 6 years old all the way up to 18 years old, competed at the Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championship meet that was held on Saturday, November 19th, at Cabell Midland High School, the site of the West Virginia State High School Cross Country Championships.
 
"Cabell Midland’s cross country course offers a balanced combination of hills and flats that is one of the best groomed courses in the state. The course runs on the campus of Cabell Midland High School and the Cabell County Farm. It is very spectator friendly and allows coaches to monitor the action closely for the majority of the race." says Chris Parsons.

West Virginia had a contingent of runners compete at the Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championships. Listed below are the finishers from West Virginia. Please let me know if I've missed anyone. Results Courtesy: http://www.tristateracer.com
