The Cross-Country season ran from mid-September to early-November.  The 2014 season was the best Patterson’s had in the past 8 years.

Our #1 runner, Tesfalem Buluts, was a consistent second in all our races, and he won a second place medal in the City Championships.  A second runner, Yonas Fishaye, won a ribbon for placing among the top 15 in these same championships.  At the state meet Yonas also had a strong finish.  All along the way Makel McCoy and Tevon McGuire were consistently improving, with both of them taking minutes off their near-20 minute times for the 3.1 mile course.
