The 2014 cross country season will begin Saturday for the Poteau Lady Pirates and Pirates as they will run at the Lincoln Christian Invitational in Tulsa. The event begins at 8 a.m.
The Lady Pirates were seventh in last fall's Class 4A State Meet, and they return three runners from that squad. Sheridan Hoyer was 46th at state last fall, Kayle Dryer was 71st and Bailee Bates was 95th.
However, it's a different story for the Pirates. Graduation hit them hard, and they only return two runners from last fall — Isaac Stacy and Allen Daniels.
