Heat takes toll in CC opener

FAIRFIELD — The heat proved as tough as the competition in Monday’s season-opening cross country invitational here.

The 90-degree weather caused two Lady Aces runners to drop out of the race. “Our biggest struggle for this meet was that it was our first time running in this high of temperatures and we were not acclimated to the heat,” said coach Steve Perry.
