Cross country: Local teams in the running for state tite

Coaches plan for the postseason and Flowery Branch's cross country coach Jimmy Sorrells knows that his planning could lead to the program's first state title.

The last time they ran there, during the Last Chance Invitational on Oct. 25, the Falcons came away with a first-place finish. If they do that today, they'll be state champions.
