        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Cross country, which is having somewhat of a break-out season, took another big step forward  Thursday when for the first time in at least 20 years and the first time ever at Bullitt East, there was a local  meet held.

Girls and boys ran in the one race along with varsity and junior-varsity runners all at one time.

    North Bullitt had beaten Bullitt East three times this season, but could not find the post-season magic that seems to still reside with the Lady Chargers.
