Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Well, today is a historic day for the Hartford cross country program. It has to be a day that coach and athletic director Andrew Capone has been looking forward to for a long time. The Tanagers will host their first ever home meet this afternoon.
Argyle and Corinth will come to town to run against Hartford in the initial meet over the course. The event is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. Typically the modified runs first followed by the varsity teams.
Congrats to Coach Capone and the Hartford program.
