West Frankfort Cross Country In Middle of Huge Week of Their Season

WEST FRANKFORT — The West Frankfort Cross Country Team is in the midst of a big week of their season, with meets at Nashville, Goreville, and Benton all on the schedule.

Redbirds Cross Country Coach Matt Hamplemann says while physically this will be a hard week on his runners, he hopes it is a launching pad for success the rest of the fall.

The final race of the week for the Redbirds is in Benton today. Hampelmann says the race is a good way for his runners to see a future track, as the track will host postseason action later this fall.
