Bucs' boys, girls runners finish with 6-1 records in O-K Red

Both Grand Haven's boys and girls cross country teams closed out their O-K Red Conference seasons with 6-1 records following their wins over Jenison and East Kentwood on Wednesday at Grand Haven High School. The Bucs' girls lone loss came on Sept. 14 against Hudsonville, but head coach Greg Russick still believes his team is ready to defend its Division 1 championship. On Wednesday, Grand Haven easily outdistanced Jenison, 18-45, and East Kentwood, 18-44.
