Team of the Week – Heritage Cross Country

MONROEVILLE, Ind. (WANE) – The Heritage Patriots went 15 years without a cross country program. That was until five years ago when head coach Matt Smith got both the girls and boys team back together. Their first year back Heritage finished in last place in the ACAC. This year they are ACAC championship.

The boys team ended South Adams’ seven year streak of winning the conference championship at Saturday’s meet hosted by Adams Central. This is the first time Heritage has won a conference title in cross country since 1994. The girls team was runner-up.

Heritage will now try for a sweep at the Bellmont sectional this Saturday.
