LINCOLN CITY — Heritage Hills cross country has seen some success both at the individual and at the program in recent years, and the Patriots are trying to continue that in 2022.

“Several kids have put in quite a bit of work, which was definitely evident this morning,” Pats coach Kurt Denning said Monday. “Today’s the first official practice and we had a heck of a workout this morning, and the effort that was given was great, and seen some real nice improvements on some kids — and of course, got some freshmen that don’t know what they’re capable of really until we get the first meet under our belt. But from what effort I saw from them this morning, I was pleased.”
