  • Cross country team features full girls squad, but no boys

    For the second year in a row, Carroll County has enough girl runners to field a full cross-country team. However, the other extreme is the boys’ team does not have any runners.

    Head coach David Otte said he has been recruiting runners for the boys’ team, but has been unable to receive any firm commitments from anyone wanting to run. He said he has had some “verbal” commitments, but they have not shown up at practice yet. Runners have until the end of next week to commit to the team.
