Coral Shores’ cross country coach Lyndie Meyers led by example during the Dec. 1 Key Largo Bridge Run. Signing herself up for the 5k race and placing second in her age group, Meyers encouraged her team to put in some work to keep the progress going. Her fellow runners also brought home some hardware, including regional qualifier Kai Guth, who won the 15- to 19-year-old female age group, and Julia Rusch, who came in right behind Guth. Saige Ensign and Hayden Teal took second and third place, respectively, in the 12- to 14-year-old age group, paving the way for the Hurricanes’ continued success next season. Nathaniel Shugarman, member of the boys team, finished the road race in second place in the men’s 15- to 19-year-old division.
