Competitors in the Bowie Rabbit Run on Sept. 20 were met with temperatures soaring into the high 90’s, but that didn’t slow down the Jackrabbits as all four Bowie teams swept their own meet.

The Bowie High School boys placed first with 58 points, BHS girls placed first with 25 points, Bowie Junior High boys claimed first with 50 points and the BJH girls won first with 46 points.

Kamryn Cantwell led the way for the girls, finishing first with a time of 13:45.5.

She was closely followed behind by Macie McCollum, who finished third with a time of 14:23.1.

Cantwell and McCollum were joined in the top 10 by Ali Frie in fifth, Sage Bullock in seventh and Emmy Thomas in ninth.

“It was nice hosting a meet here in town and doing well,” said Girl Cross Country Coach Chuck Hall. “Nocona and us were the two best teams, it was just a matter of who was going to run better. That day we were able to be a little bit ahead of them. Those are probably the two teams that are going to fight for that last district spot to go to regionals, so it is going to make it an exciting rivalry for Montague County for the last three weeks of the season.”
