The two-time defending state champion Rocks cross country team, under first-year head coach Craig Kannapel, has this year scored two seconds and placed fifth in the Trinity Invitational, the oldest meet in Kentucky. 

Senior Ryan O’Dea placed third in the Trinity Invitational.

The team seconds were notched in the Franklin County Invitational and at Thomas Nelson High School.

Team leader and one of the best in the state, O’Dea, told the Athletics Dept.: “Every day I go for a run knowing that it is one step closer to helping our team make history this fall. Winning our third straight state team title would be a capstone to my final year at THS. As a senior, I am excited to build upon our existing success, as well as welcome new brothers to a team that’s hungry for another state title.”
