When it comes to the hopes, dreams and aspirations of the Foxes cross country team of 67 runners, Cathy Binder has good reason to be optimistic.
“This year our goal is to feature two Battlefield District champions, Haley Armentrout, and Tyler Lumpkin,” the King George High School head coach said.
Given the fact that Lumpkin is a seasoned distance runner, compliments of both cross country and track and field, and Armentrout’s 2010 performance featured a
