The Lake County Panthers hosted 10 teams at Colorado Mountain College on Saturday in their annual cross country meet.

The Buena Vista Demons were there and both sides put good showings onto the course, particularly on the girls side where the Demons would win the overall crown, and the Panthers would see great group times put them high up in the team standings as well.
