The infamous Golden Shoe made its first appearance on the boys cross country team last season. Though it may appear to merely be a spray painted running shoe tied to a gold chain, the Golden Shoe is so much more. “It was started by last year’s captains to symbolize somebody’s efforts,” boys XC spokesperson Tripp Teague explains, “It is given each week to someone who has done well, and is then attached to our tent at the meet. It’s somewhat of a good luck charm for us.” Whether or not the Cavs’ success can be attributed to the Golden Shoe is up for debate, but the results speak for themselves, as CCES took 6th at A/AA State Qualifiers and will send 7 runners from the boys team to compete at State.
