Lincoln County's cross country teams made their presence known at Saturday's E.G. Plummer Invitational in Danville by garnering four Top 10 finishes.
Lincoln's runners were among the nearly 400 high school, middle school and elementary athletes who plodded their way over the hills and into the woods surrounding Admiral Stadium for the annual meet.
Lincoln's top finish overall in the meet belonged to elementary runner Morgan Gourley. Gourley, a sixth-grader who won the event last year, had to settle for second this time around. Wayne County sixth-grader Sadie Martin beat her to the finish in the 1.1-mile race Saturday in 8:04.4. Gourley's time was 8:27.7.
The girls' elementary division was the only race in which Lincoln placed two runners in the Top 10. Following Gourley across for Lincoln was Logan Godbey, who covered the distance in 9:42.8 to place ninth.
