Halstead runnerssweep at Burrton

HARVEY COUNTY WEST PARK — The Halstead High School cross country teams swept the team titles Thursday at the Burrton Invitational at Harvey County West Park.

“It was a small meet, but provided a challenging terrain and an enjoyable atmosphere,” Halstead coach Curtis Vermillion said. “The weather was not ideal, with, as some would say, the return of summer-like temperatures. In addition, dry conditions, and gusty south winds blowing up dust, created challenges for several in attendance. I thought our runners stepped up in the conditions, and competed very well. I was pleased with the efforts of each runner.”

Halstead hosts the Central Kansas League Championships Thursday at the Wedgewood Golf Course.
