Last season the Lexington girls and boys cross country teams finished the season strong with the boys team finishing 11th at state, the girls 8th. This season coach Denise Benson has even higher hopes for her runners. On the boys side, Lexington returns two strong runners in senior Zane Sturts who finished 4th at state last season in 16:18.9 and junior Nick Stricklen who came in right behind Sturts in 5th at 16:21.7. Benson will also be counting on senior Quinton Glenn who also ran at state last season finishing in 17:52. But Benson says Glenn is in better shape this preseason than he has ever been and is working harder than he ever has.

On the girls side, even though Lex graduated two strong runners from last year, the cupboard is not bare. Lady Lex returns two state caliber runners in junior Dominique Clairmonte, who missed almost all of last season due to injury, but had a strong track season in the spring finishing 5th in the Division II girls 1,600 meter run in 4:55.3. Also coming back is sophomore Mackenna Curtis-Collins, who as a freshman finished 23rd in the state in 19:02.2.

Benson believes the teams strongest challenge in the OCC will come from Ashland. She adds that if the team can stay healthy and improve they have the potential for a podium finish in Hebron, Ohio. Lexington will open their season on the road Saturday at the OHSAA Early Season Invitational in Hebron.
