Moore Haven cross country team goes to regional

Cristobal Morales continued his amazing freshman year with a fourth place finish at the Region 1A-2 cross country meet Friday, Oct. 28, at Holloway Park in Lakeland.

Morales finished in 17:33.17 to lead the Terriers to a 16th place finish. Morales won the district championship earlier this month and his regional performance was more than good enough to qualify for the state finals. Morales made it last year as an eighth grader as well.
