SHELBYVILLE — The Central A&M Raiders took their five girls and three boys to Shelbyville on Thursday afternoon to compete in the CIC conference race. The Raiders faced off against the Rams, Tuscola, St. Teresa, Clinton, Sullivan, and Tuscola. Unfortunately, neither team was able to get a runner into the top-10 to finish as an all-conference runner this season. Friday, October 16, 2020
The Central A&M cross country team wasn’t expecting to have any home races this season, but they were able to get two in in the past two weeks. The one on Thursday was a little more special, though, as they honored their three senior runners.
Brandon Escobedo, who has been a member of the cross country team all four years, along with first-year runners Victoria Billups and Hadley Reed, were recognized for their successful seasons before the race on Tuesday. Friday, September 25, 2020
A golf course wouldn’t be the first place that comes to mind when looking to go for a run, but that is exactly what Central A&M, Cerro Gordo, Bement, and Okaw Valley runners did on Tuesday afternoon in Moweaqua.
The Moweaqua Golf Course has played home field for the Raider cross country team for a couple of years now, and although not on their original schedule, head coach Rachael Williams and athletic director Sean Hayes have been hard at work to get the Raiders home cross country meets this season.

The Central A&M Raiders traveled to Bement on Wednesday for their second cross country meet of the season. The race was originally scheduled for Tuesday, but the weather postponed the meet to Wednesday.
“It’s tough running a race a week,” said A&M head coach Rachael Williams. “You kind of get into a groove during practice, and then ramp up a little before a meet, run the meet, and then have a lighter day after the meet. It’s just the ebb and flow of the schedule.” Friday, September 11, 2020
