The West County High School (WCHS) cross country team finished up a historic fall campaign on Saturday at the North Coast Section Division 3 meet in Hayward, putting the final touches on a championships season.  

“We wrapped up an incredible season free of fires, floods, power shutdowns and less pandemic with an awesome effort by our varsity runners at the NCS Championship meet,” WCHS coach Mark Grismer said. “On a challenging and still wet, slow course for the first couple races, and racing in the deepest and strongest of the five divisions (Div. 3), our runners went out strong and fast.”
