There are not enough girls or boys Class A Cross Country teams this year for a Class A state championship race. The SC High School League will combine Class A and Class AA teams into one race. The qualifier for this race will be Saturday, October 27, at Sandhills Research Park in Columbia. Boys will run at 11am, and girls will run at 11:30 am. Top 18 teams (plus any top 20 runner not on one of the top 18 teams) will advance to the State Finals on Saturday, November 3. Competing against AA teams (especially reigning AA Champion St. Joseph's) will be an Eagle-worthy challenge for GSSM Runners! Never know what might happen! #GoEagles!!
