chisholm-trailDateline September 7, 2013 – Boswell HS Pioneer Trial Run @ Tarrant County College, Hurst TX: There was no tarrying by the Marcus Marauder Cross Country Teams on this hot, humid, sunny morning at Tarrant County College in Hurst, TX, not too far from the site of one of the many branches of the Old Chisholm Trail. With that pioneering spirit, It was “Wagons Ho'” for MXC from the get-go. The Marauders saddled-up and absolutely high-tailed it, blazing a trail, “skedaddling” from ”trail head” to “end of trail,” faster than a 40 mule team hauling “Borax!”

The Varsity Girls hit the trail first and galloped to victory with MXCers finishing 1-2-3-4, DSC_6490foreshadowing that it would be “Katy Bar the Door” for the competition.

And the JV Girls pony expressed it from start to finish, reining in the competition with a Sweet 17 score, nearly perfect, with Marauders taking eight of the first nine spots.

Spurred by the success of the other MXC teams, the JV Boys used their horse power to

push the US Mail envelopes across the finish line – absolutely delivering the goods 465– a perfect 15 (taking places one through five, and the sixth for good measure), thus helping MXC take home the hardware that comes with a complete meet sweep.

That left Marauder fans all in a lather as they trotted on home 383across the free range.
