336 of the best Middle School Boys, who qualified in their regions, from across the State of Tennessee made their way to The Knoxville Livestock Center on Saturday for the State Championship Race. Schools were represented from Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga, Bristol, Knoxville and more. The 8th grade leaders for the Clayton-Bradley Academy Cross Country team, of Bentley Larsen and Lyle Webster showed up in a big way. They knew this course better than almost all of the others running it, with this being their 4th time on it this season. They finished their great seasons and middle school careers strong in this race. Bentley smashed his personal record, coming in with a time of 11:48, finishing 57th. Lyle had one of his best times ever also, coming in at 12:21, finishing 121st. This means Bentley finished in the top 17% and Lyle finished in the top 36% in the entire state for Middle School boys!
