    It might take a month or two or, heck, even into the summer before the SCHS football players can look back on the 2009 season without fixating on last week’s loss at Trinity.

    The boys team took ninth place in the Class 3A State Cross Country Meet at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington Saturday afternoon.

    Leader Stacey Eden said that would ease his personal disappointment in taking fourth place with a time of 16:14.59.

    LEXINGTON -- Caterina Karas led the three individual Lady Rockets competing in the Class 3A State Cross Country Meet at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday afternoon -- but she wasn't the only success story.

    The sophomore, seeded second going into the race, placed fourth in a time of 19 minutes, 8.92 seconds,. which was "totally good," Karas said, because she's battling a sinus infection.
