Giles Invitational Coverage Sep 5, 2013

Matthew Farmer of Rural Retreat was just edged out for the win at last year's Giles Invitational by Bland County's Josh Goodman with both runners timed at 16:35. Farmer was not going to allow the same result happen this year back at Giles High School as he pulled away from strong challengers in Parry McCluer's Sam Armstrong (2nd, 16:43) and Auburn's Jared Downing (3rd, 16:44) for a 16:30 victory.
