One of the goals coming into the 2013 Knoxville Cross Country Season was senior Courtney Hugh’s goal of getting to the state meet. Knowing this is her final chance to run at state she has taken a different strategy to getting there. She tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that her coach Mike Moats said not to worry so much about her times as much as where she places, since they take the top ten individuals from the State Qualifying Meet. Hughs finished 19th at this week’s Little Hawkeye Conference Meet with her season best time of 16:51. Both Panther boys and girls squads will run at the Class three-A State Qualifier in Pella next Monday October 24th.
