High school cross country: Falcons chasing Spartans for title

The difference between the West Hall and Flowery Branch boys cross country teams has been razor thin this season. The Spartans, Class AAA's No. 4 in the state according to, have picked up two wins this season against the fifth-ranked Falcons.
