Scottie cross country team at Faith's run

With near perfect weather conditions and a familar setting in Faith's golf course near Durkee Lake, and a small but talented field of competitors, the Philip Scottie cross country team began its second 2010 competition.

Faith began with the grade school mile. Philip third grader Josie Rush tried her hand at distance running for the first time, and ran a very respectable 6:53 to place fourth among the girls and 10th among all the 22 grade school runners.

Faith ended its day with a 200 meter fun run.
