Cross-country finals move back to Winston-Salem

CHAPEL HILL--The annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state cross-country championships will be moving back to Tanglewood Park in Winston-Salem for 2009.

The NCHSAA had previously announced that the event would move to the cross-country course at SAS Soccer Park in Cary starting this year, but an unforeseen scheduling conflict with the facility could not be worked out and forced the change.

Tanglewood has been the site of the NCHSAA championships since 2002, and before that they were held at McAlpine Park in Charlotte for many years.
