CHS Cross CountryThe Coosa High Lady Eagles cross-country team won a region championship title for the fourth year in a row Wednesday at the Region 7-AA meet at Georgia Highlands College. The team was led by sisters, Alena and Kirstin Holmes, as both placed in the top 6 to qualify for state.  Alena is a senior and Kirstin is a sophomore at Coosa High. It was an incredibly close competition as the Lady Eagles took first place by a single point and only three points separated the top three teams.

The team just made the required number of runners to qualify for the team title with five.  The Lady Eagles also received important contributions from Joanna Mullenax, a senior; Mary Corbin, a sophomore; and Erika LeClear, a freshman; to secure the team title. The girls will now prepare for the State Meet to be held November 9 in Carrollton.

The team was led by coaches
 Candi Cole and Ricky Riordan. "This season hasn't been easy and the girls have trained hard to reach their goals," stated Cole. "I'm overwhelmingly proud of them and their achievement!"
