This placed the Rams at the top of the podium in the A-AA Division as county champions.
Earlier in the season, the girls won their first five races and captured the sectional crown in late September. On Oct. 8, the girls came in a close second-place finish in the Big South Conference Championship.
The team's top runners are Charlee Leach, Andrea Kassa, Matigan Evans, Angelina Massey, Angelique Mariana, Annie Daerr and Kaitlyn Lusk.
The Ringgold Boys Cross Country team has also had a successful campaign this fall. Lucas Pajak, Ben Daerr, Lorenzo Zeni, Nick Whaley and Molisse all earned All-Big South Conference honors. Pajak, a freshman, came in first place at the conference meet with a time of 16:05.30. The winning time broke a 28-year school record.
