For the second straight week against some of the top competition in the state, the Three Forks High School Cross Country team once again shined at last Saturday's Bozeman Invite.

"We had a great meet. Our girls did very well. Bella Jones and Teegan Gifford ran in the mid 21's. We just need to work on tightening up as a whole, but I'm very pleased with all of their efforts," Head Coach Tara Forsberg said.

On the boys' side, senior Bryon Fanning continued his torrid start to the season with a time of 16:46.30. Cass Violett had an excellent day for the Wolves, finishing with a time of 17:41.12.
