Saratoga Panther cross-country runners did not let a cold and rainy day deter them from running in the Shana Ward Memorial Invitational held at the Saratoga Resort and Spa Friday.

Several hundred runners from around the region traveled to Saratoga to compete at the invitational. Despite the poor weather, teams still ran the course that had been mapped out across the resort's golf course, and Saratoga runners performed well at home.
