Pinckneyville Girls Cross Country Team to Run for Class 1A State Title Saturday

PINCKNEYVILLE — While much of the focus this weekend will be on high school football playoffs, the Pinckneyville Girls’ Cross Country team is running for a state championship Saturday morning.

Pinckneyville Cross Country Coach Ryan Bruns says it took one person making the state tournament a few years back to build the success his program is seeing today.

In addition to the Pinckneyville girls’ team, the Panthers boys will be represented by senior Liam Oliver, who finished 9th overall at the Benton sectional.
