Coach Kirton and the Canyon boys meet prior to their race at the 20232 Canyon Invitational
The Canyon boys won the UIL 4A Cross Country State team title last fall by only scoring 40 points. That was ahead of runner-up La Feria's 107 point total.
Canyon returns four runners from that team including their top three runners and they prepare to stare the upcoming championships season.
La Feria and other UIL 4A teams are on the hunt to take down the reigning defending state champs and Coach Wesley Kirton discusses his team's path to defending and how they approached the season as a whole.
