The cross country season concluded on Friday as there were 19 individual RPAC athletes and three teams competing. Teams competed at the NSAA State Cross Country meet which was held at the Kearney Country Club and they had an abnormally warm day for the end of October but there was little wind which made for a tough day to race.
