Each team of nine runners is only allowed a space three feet wide through which all of the runners must pass. Elbows and punches are commonplace in the ‘non-contact’ sport.

Coronado’s very own Zinabu Engstrom(10), Ben Hayes-Lemmon(12), and Grace Abernethy(12) placed in the top twenty for the meet. All of the teams had a great turnout and ran well. Thank you to all of the parents and students who helped organize and run the meet, as well as the great Coronado Cross Country coaches who make this meet happen every year. The Cougar Classic is one of the biggest events that Coronado puts on all year, come out next year and support our amazing runners!
