Boys and girls cross country compete in the J-Hawk Invite
ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - While teams and athletes across the state adjust to the new fall sports schedule, athletic directors and coaches adjust to conducting competitions within health guidelines set forth by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
Jefferson hosted the first boys and girls cross country meet in Rockford, with the 50-person limit in place. The races were separated by 45 minutes to allow athletes and others to get off the course. Jefferson marked off starting points with flag markers for the runners on the starting line six feet apart to allow for social distancing.
Belvidere North won the boys event while Aquin took home the girls team title.
