UNICOI — It was her first race since last October, but Milligan junior Cassie St. John was on point.
Running a three-mile best 18:39.72 in the women’s division, St. John led a spectacular effort by the Lady Buffaloes, who captured six of the first eight finishes en route to a team win at the inaugural Buffalo Valley Stampede at Buffalo Valley Golf Course.
“We’re working really hard right now and just wanted to get out of the gate, put the uniform on and race a little bit,” said Milligan coach Chris Layne. “I’m pleased with what they did.”
