JBP cross country season starts strong



After an impressive showing in the Pepsi XC Challenge cross country meet and the Chickasaw Trails Invitational, the J.B. Pennington cross country team started the season off with two top-10 ranked runners. Senior Paul Gonzalez (left) is currently ranked seventh overall in Alabama’s 3A male division while freshman Autumn Sansing (right) is ranked ninth overall in the 3A female division.

Other notable cross country athletes in the county and making the top 20 are Pennington’s Jaxon Branham (17th) and Susan Moore’s Anthony Lopez (19th).

After a very successful cross country season last year, the J.B. Pennington XC team is showing early-season promise to be a top ranked team again this year.
