Greencastle-Antrim takes 4th: The Blue Devils produced five medalists and came in third place in the Class 3A team standings at the Mid Penn Conference championships on Saturday at Big Spring.

The high finish pushed G-A into the team race at the District 3 event on Oct. 29.

G-A coach Rich Secrest said, “The boys ran a very good race — third in the Mid Penn is always an accomplishment.  We must come back in two weeks and move our 3-5 runners up in hopes of having a chance at making it as a team to states.”
