Calvary's blooming cross country program

Calvary track coach Linzie Hebert approached the school's superintendent Ed Hearron this summer about starting up a cross country program.

Within the span of a few months, the Cavaliers already have two of the best runners in the state. Juniors Chase Rolland and Zac Overstreet finished in the top-10 at the LHSAA state meet down in Natchitoches in mid-November. Their finish gave them All-State honors despite taking up the sport only a few months ago.

Football may be king at Calvary, but the two quit the team to run cross country for Hebert. Hebert said the two have a natural talent for the sport.

It was fortuitous gamble for the harriers (haven't written that word in a long time), but one that paid dividends no matter what their coaches or teammates may have originally thought. They may not have received much scholarship talk for playing football, but Hebert said the pair could earn scholarships in cross country.

We'll have more about the pair later this week in The Times.
