On November 13th, 27 Breen runners made their way to the Laverne Gibson Championship Cross Country Course in Terre Haute, Indiana to compete in the Nike Midwest Region Cross Country Invitational. The 18 boys and 9 girls enjoyed perfect running weather at the course designed especially for cross country racing.
