The Nebo Invite was held at Maple Mountain High School on September 25, 2009, at three o’clock. The race was three miles instead of the average 3.1. Twenty teams from all across Utah competed in the event, many of which were seasoned competitors. Despite the overwhelming size and skill of many of the participants present, Maple Mountain Cross Country boys and girls showed their strength. Girls’ Varsity took third overall while the Boy’s Varsity took a respectable fifth place finish. A freshman, Rachel Warnick, was privileged to help bring her team to a third place finish. Overall, the two teams were able to defend their home turf and continue to show the state that they will be a force to reckon with.
