Running home: LSXC comes away with five total wins in final home meet

On a gorgeous fall afternoon, the Lampeter-Strasburg cross country team hosted its second and final home meet of the season. Garden Spot, Annville-Cleona, and Penn Manor descended on West Lampeter to run on the Pioneers' home course. Ostensibly benefiting from its knowledge thereof, L-S teams combined to go 5-1, with the girls' team sweeping the opposition, and the boys' team defeating Garden Spot and Annville Cleona, but falling to Penn Manor.
