Looks like cutting back on those snickerdoodles is paying off for Dubba Bubba Bowens and the CLJ Jones High School Cross Country squad! Led by the newly slimmed down junior, the boys’ team took a surprising second place in the Rochon County Swamp Womp Invitational, putting them just two points shy of third overall with three meets to go. Bowens excelled, finishing second overall, while Sam Clift completed the course in ninth. Big Blue placed all five of its runners in the top 30.
And over on the football field, CLJJ’s winning ways continued as it defeated lowly Fairhope 38-10 Friday night. Colby Slaughter continued his march through the CLJJ record books throwing for 364 yards and 4 TDs, also rushing for a score. Mike Mansour rushed for 89 yards and Geno Fordham led all defenders with 15 tackles. The team has momentum heading into its Homecoming clash against Daphne next week.
