After the meet against St. Lawrence Central, and the pressure they felt to win that meet for their 100th win, the meet on Thursday was a nice breather from the intensity of the previous meet. However, just because the stakes were not as high, the Bears continued to work hard and have now begun to prepare for their next big challenge of Sectionals. Canton will face Edwards-Knox, away, at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18 for their next meet.
