Ericksen and Jeffrey lead the charge for the Tornado varsity cross country team

NORWICH – The Norwich varsity cross country has enjoyed some early successes in the 2016 season, on both the boys and girls side of the races.

• On Sept. 10, the Tornado boys and girls got their season underway when they traveled to Oneonta, for the annual Oneonta ‘Flash’ Forbes Invitational meet.
