“Tis best to weigh the enemy more mighty than he seems.” -Bill Shakespeare

For the past couple of years, the Tiger Cross Country has had one main competitor for the state crown. This year a second team has emerged into state championship competition, and they are Cooper High School. Most of you all know plenty about Trinity and who they are, but most likely you don’t know much about Cooper or anything about them. Here is some information about the school from Northern Kentucky.

Mascot: Jaguars

School Colors: Maroon and Gold

Location: 2855 Longbranch Road, Union, KY 41091

Notable People Associated with Cooper:

No notable alumni, as the school has only been open since 2008, so there are not any famous jaguars just yet. Zachary Stewart is their fastest 5K runner in their short school history, and he will graduate in spring.

Coach: Eric Van Laningham

Top runners: Zachary Stewart (15:30.24), Brady Baker (15:56.70), Connor Greenhalgh (15:58.12), Mitchell Greenhalgh (16:21.06), Jake Vandermosten (16:58.26)

Last year: Placed 3rd in the KHSAA State Cross Country Championship. They scored 161 points, and their top 5 runners placed 12th, 23rd, 28th, 29th and 69th.

Last Meeting: At the Great American Festival, Cooper finished 7th with 226 points, and the Tigers finished 8th with 241 points.
