October 13, 2010 - Both Cross Country teams placed 13th in the Oakland County Meet on Saturday.

Natalie Smith led the the Girls Varsity team as they scored 316 points on the sunny day. Troy finished in first with 173 points.

"We had a few individual performances stand out," said Coach Kevin Breen, noting Kylie Knavish and Lindsey Fantin had good races.

"It was good and they put in a good effort especially working them as hard as I did in practice last week.

"The team is a little banged up right now so we are trying to get the girls healthy."

Novi Detroit Catholic Central captured the top spot for the boys with 99 points, Clarkston score 380.

Adam Bruderick led the team, finishing in 16th with a time of 16:50.

Thirty teams competed in the meet at Kensington Metropark.

Both teams compete in the Gabriel Richards Invitational on Saturday, but Breen is more focused on the girls final OAA Jamboree next Thursday at Bloomer Park.

They are also preparing for Regionals the last week of October.
