Cross country team prepares to run down goals
July 26, 2023
This year’s Wrangell High School cross country team has some big running shoes to fill.
Last year, the boys team placed first at regionals and first at state, which was a first-ever accomplishment for the team. Some of those runners are returning and head coach Mason Villarma has big hopes for the athletes.
“I think the men will definitely look to repeat a state championship,” he said in an interview on Friday, July 21. “I think the women — Southeast looks really weak — so I think they can win a regional championship. Anything can happen at state if we make that benchmark.”
