The GHS cross country team has its sights set on another appearance in the regional tournament.

Sophomores Will Walton and Rafael Sanchez, junior Harrison Brown and senior Gracia Diego will lead the boys team this season. All four finished in the top 15 at district to help the Steers finish as the district
5-3A runner-up.

The defending district champion girls team top returning runners include senior Angelica Rendon, juniors Claudia Padron and Cristal Sanchez, and sophomore Skylar Forbus.

Although the team goal has been set, boys coach Marcus Morris knows that each individual has something they want to accomplish.
