Riverside Christian Academy’s cross-country team more than doubled in size this year, boasting a record 24 members and competing at a very high level within its conference.

The cross-country team ran in five Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference (MTAC) meets at Currey Ingram Academy in Brentwood.

RCA’s high school girls placed second as a team in their division at the MTAC championship meet, and the middle school boys placed fourth in their division at the championship meet. Both teams brought home trophies.
