By its very nature, cross country running is an individual sport, but this does not stop Washington School’s Lawton Poole and J.D. Bennett from being great teammates.
Poole and Bennett, the Planters Bank Players of the Week, do whatever they can to help push their fellow Generals to the finish line.
“Not only are they good runners, but they encourage the rest of the team with their positive attitudes,” said their coach, Jamie Murrell. “You will see them running extra with a teammate who is struggling in practice.”
