Finally, there was some sports under the Friday Night Lights.
Whenever people think of Friday Night Lights, the first thought is football but, in The Woodlands, last week there was a different kind of sport that involved running that took place under those said lights – Cross Country.
The John Cooper School cross country teams were off to the races in that annual race. Nine girls set new personal records for the Dragons in the two-mile race, while almost every boy improved on their times from 2018.
The Cooper boys' team ran in the Varsity B (4K) race, putting two runners in the Top 20. Junior Will McDermott finished seventh with a time of 13:35 (PR) followed by senior Cadan Hanson in 17th place with a personal record of 13:56. Sophomore Vishnu Swaminathan also ran well in his first cross country meet finishing in 31st place. Carson Hanson and Alex Everson rounded out the Top 5 scorers for Cooper.
