RICEVILLE -- This year Riceville girls cross county has strength in numbers.
With seven or eight girls out for the sport, they have enough to compete as a team rather than just as individuals like they did last year when they only had four.
Their goal is "to run better than we did last year and to keep improving," said senior Allie Bigley.
It's important to "try to set a good pace to the run the entire thing," she said.
