Members of the Granby Memorial Middle School cross country team ran in the Connecticut State Middle School Cross Country Meet on Nov. 6. This culminating event for middle school runners was held at Wickham Park in Manchester with hundreds of runners from across the state. Runners ran in either a 1.7-mile or a 2.3-mile race, with a dramatic finish at the top of an incline.

Congratulations to all who ran, and many thanks to coaches Wally Hansen, Melissa Wabble and Colleen Nisbet for preparing these runners throughout the 2021 cross country season.
