The Stacey Eagles and Lady Eagles Cross Country teams competed in the Region IV Cross Country Meet at Texas A & M Corpus Christi on Monday, October 28. Josey Whitaker won the girls' race with a time of 11:57 and will be advancing to the State Cross Country Meet on November 9th. Greg Bollinger came in 8th for the boys with a time of 17:21 and will also be advancing to the State Cross Country Meet. It has been 3 years since Stacey has had a female state qualifier, and 5 years since a male state qualifier. Both Greg and Josey are in their freshman year and also play basketball at Stacey. Our teams have put in a lot of hard work and have had a great season. Congratulations to all the runners
