Bears’ Snow third in XC meet

Staff Report

The Mount Airy cross-country team sent three of its members to the Traxx Cross-Country Invitational on Saturday at Fisher River Park in Dobson, with Lady Bear track and basketball standout Jo Snow bringing home a top-three finish against a very strong field of competitors.

Snow, who earned all-state honors in track and field a year ago, put up a time of 22:29 that would have been competitive in the boys’ half of the competition, and came in third overall among the girls who ran in the race.

On the boys’ side of the competition, the Granite Bears’ Isaac Phipps finished 20th with a time of 22:20, and Tripp Gilley finished 27th with time of 29:47.

The Bears, along with East Surry, will compete in the Northwest 1A Conference championship meet on Oct. 20 at the Ivey Redmon Sports Complex in Kernersville.
