Draughn boys senior cross country runner Reed Farrar and Patton girls senior cross country runner Madison Clay are The News Herald’s Farm Bureau Burke County co-athletes of the week for events held Oct. 4-9.

Clay (19:44) won the girls county title Tuesday at Freedom by 1 minute, 50 seconds and is now up to four wins for the season, all in events held in Burke County. She had previously won the Freedom Invitational and Draughn Invitational as well as a shorter distance early-season meet hosted by FHS at its track and driving range.

The News Herald and Farm Bureau will recognize a county athlete of the week throughout the 2021-22 school year.
