Last week the Morgan High School cross country team competed in two separate events. On Wednesday, Aug. 28, the Trojans embarked on the long trek to Roosevelt to compete against five other schools in a traditional 5K format. It became a race to the starting line for the Morgan athletes. The school bus had broken down in Summit County, causing significant delays for the team and potentially jeopardizing their ability to compete. Runners from the other schools had been warming up on the course and were gathered at the starting line ready to race.
