GRADY, ALABAMA — The Montgomery Catholic Racing Knights ran close to home on Saturday at the Huntington Invitational, carrying the momentum from a successful start to their season.

With Catholic’s placing at the Waffle House/ Yellow Jacket Invitational, there was no guarantee they would be able to replicate their success at the Huntington Invitational. And yet they did in a highly competitive field on a tough trail that created a new set of challenges. 

The Lady Knights finished fourth in girls’ varsity; the boys’ team finished seventh.

Senior and team captain, Catherine Aaron, placed third overall for her race; yet another indicator of what is sure to be a strong season for her. 

While Aaron was the only Catholic runner to enter the top ten, with 19 season best runs and 11 PR’s for the team, the season looks promising. 

The Grady course is infamous among local teams due to its steep, “time ruining” hills. 

The competition was fierce among the 13 girls’ and 17 boys’ teams. However, this season the Knights are proving they are more than capable of holding their own against schools twice their size. Montgomery Catholic is certainly a team to watch out for at their next meet: the TCBY Race in Tuscaloosa.
