Greensburg Salem cross-country teams get championship escort back into town
After coming away with a boys’ WPIAL AA team title in cross country and a runner-up spot for the girls’ team, Greensburg Salem track and field athletes had a chance for a victory lap on the way home.
The team bus received a police and fire-truck escort as supporters lined the road to cheer them on. The miniature parade began at city hall and proceeded to the senior high school on Main Street.
Greensburg Salem’s bus to the state championship meet in Hershey will be a little crowded: the girls team grabbed second place in the Class AA meet to secure a berth in the PIAA race Nov. 3 at the Parkview cross country course.
The Golden Lions’ Mark Brown led the pack in the WPIAL Class AA boys championship race and finished ahead of all other competitors to claim first place in 16 minutes, 52 seconds.
