The cross country season has begun for the Owen County Lady Rebels.
The team has high expectations entering the season. Danielle Hoop is returning for her junior season. Julie Spaulding, a freshman, is returning for another year running for the varsity team.
The two have been working hard this summer to prepare for this season. Spaulding continues to learn from Hoop, who is coming off a second-place finish at last year’s state meet at the Kentucky Horse Park.
The team ran its first race of the season Sept. 8 at Henry County.
