PHS XC Teams Awarded  6 Pumpkins at Jack O' Lantern Jamboree

It was an eerie hot & humid Friday afternoon for the Jack O’ Lantern Jamboree race hosted by the Prattville cross country team at Camp Hobbs.  But fear not, because both the Prattville boys’ and girls’ teams took 2nd place despite the scary course with its wicked terrain and downright evil hills.  Moreover, Prattville gobbled up 6 of the most sought after spoils of the season, the highly coveted top-10 pumpkin awards!

The Lady Lions competed among 70 runners from 8 teams.  The fastest time was 20:23 by ACA.  ACA took 1st place with 33 points, Prattville was just 3 points behind earning 2nd place with a score of 36, and Sipsey Valley was 3rd with 90 points.  Sophomore, Sophia Loy led the Prattville team which scored as follows:

  • Sophia Loy (So.) – 23:18, 3 overall, 3 pts – PUMPKIN
  • Katlyn Gappa (So.) –  23:30, 6 overall, 6 pts – PUMPKIN
  • Kendra Jacobs (So.) –  23:46, 7 overall, 7 pts – PUMPKIN
