The Knoxville Cross Country Squads are back in action today at the Grinnell Invitational. The Panthers are coming off a seventh place finish for both boys and girls in the Central College Invitational hosted by Pella High over the weekend. Coach Mike Moats says the main focus is the last third of the races. He says it is easy to jump out of the start and run a quick mile…however the last half to third of the race is where both of the teams are focusing one. Moats says the teams are building for the end of the season when he hopes they will be 100-percent healthy. Two of his boys runners will likely be out until the last half of the season.
