CENTENARY, Ohio — Warren wears a big W on the front of its cross country jerseys.

Both the Warriors and the Lady Warriors also lived up to the fronts of those uniforms.

The Warren boys claimed a 67-point victory and the Lady Warriors won by 32 points on Tuesday at the 2020 Skyline Bowling Cross Country Invitational hosted by Gallia Academy High School.

Warren had five of the top seven individual finishes in the boys race, which gave the Warriors a near-perfect final tally of 16 points. Federal Hocking was second overall with 83 points, while the host Blue Devils were fourth out of six teams with 91 points.

The Lady Warriors claimed the girls crown with 33 points, while the Blue Angels were the overall runner-up out of five teams with 65 points.
