The final regular season cross country race, the first annual Pickens (& Grinnin’s) Invitational, (previously known as the Sharpton Invitational), took place in Pickens County on Saturday, Oct. 13. Driven by strong individual lead runners, both teams finished respectably on the day, with the boys’ team placing fourth overall and the girls’ team crossing the line with a 13th on the day.
