The last 200 meters of the state cross country meet are brutal. More than half is a steep uphill 10 percent grade. Lennox, known for his strong kick at the end of any competition, over takes and passes another competitor on the grade—especially hard to do after running 4,800 meters. Cooper finished an impressive 13th in a field of 175 runners in the competition.


On Saturday, Nov. 2 Cooper Lennox competed in his fourth career State Cross Country Meet. 

Cooper ended his career with a 13th place finish with a time of 16:25.  Over his career, Cooper was three time All-State, including two top 10 finishes at the State level.  He was a two-time Section Meet Champion and was All-Conference for the past three years.  

Cooper was also a key contributor to the team State Championship in 2016 and the third place team finish in 2018.

He graduates with the school record of 15:56 in the 5K.  He has made a huge impact on the Mora Cross Country program.
