The Grant County High School Cross Country team traveled to Ryle High School for the Class 3A Region 5 Championships on Nov. 3. Grant County had three qualify for the KHSAA State Cross Country Championship that will be held on Nov. 10 at the Kentucky Horsepark.


Summer Dearing and Hayley Leach took two of the five individual qualifier spots that go to the five highest placing individuals that are not on one of the top five qualifying teams in the girls event. There were five spots available because there were 10 teams that competed in the regional championship. Grant’s girls finished seventh out of 10 teams in the final team results.

Jordan Rose will be the Braves’ lone entrant at this year’s boy’s state championships. He claimed the fifth and final individual qualifer position. The Braves competed as a team to claim one of four team spots available because there are only nine boys teams in their region. The Braves finished sixth as a team.
