Even if the South Hagerstown girls cross country team loses at home against North Hagerstown on Oct. 3, the score might be a personal victory for the Rebels.
It takes five runners to make a complete cross country team, and it takes a complete team to attain a team score.
"South hasn't had a complete girls team in a long, long time," Rebels second-year coach Jaime Camden said. "It's very discouraging. But I think we're getting there."
Camden does indeed have five girls this year on her roster - junior Rachel Loudin, sophomore Tricia Korrell and freshmen Jenny Mumma, Amanda McGee and Bethany Nutter. But injuries have prevented all five from running in the same meet so far this fall.
