On Sept. 26, 2018, the Boys and Girls Cross Country team held a canned food drive in support of the local Pilgrim’s Inn of downtown Rock Hill during the teams’ only home meet of the season. The Stallions competed against the Chester High School Cyclones and triumphed exponentially.

The Cross Country team had been searching for a way to get more involved in the community and decided that hosting a canned food drive would be an excellent way in doing exactly so. For the past few weeks, the Stallions have been reaching out

to fellow members of South Pointe’s municipal, as well as Chester’s team, in order to make the volunteer effort as successful as it could possibly be.

The event was organized by Junior Hannah Berberich, who worked constantly to make sure the event played out according to plan. Berberich’s coaches and peers were also of major assistance as they helped bring in supplies for the event.

“I’m glad that we followed through with the event and can help out our community in some way or another,” Berberich said, “without the help of our athletic department and staff, the event could not have been as great as it was.”

The team’s Senior Night also took place on Tuesday and highlighted seniors Hannah and Heather Alverson, Matthew Howle, Ian Simmons, and Jalen Curry, and their accomplishments throughout their Cross Country careers.

After the food drive began to wrap up, the meet began with the Junior Varsity and Varsity Girls’ team.

Freshman Maddie Smith and eight grader Greta White took the top two spots for the meet. The two fought side by side, but in the end Maddie came out on top.

The girls’ race averaged to be around 40 minutes in total and was followed by the JV and Varsity Boys.

Front-runners Junior Eric Mitchell and Senior Matthew Howle fought for first place throughout the race, and in the end, Mitchell took the head spot. Senior Ian Simmons was soon overdue, and took third place during the home meet.

The South Pointe Cross Country team will compete next in Spartanburg this upcoming Saturday, Sept. 29.
