  On 9/1/11 the Mid-State Cross Country Association held it first meet of the season at Sharps Springs Park in Smyrna Tennessee.

The Voyles Classic is named in honor of Markie Voyles, a runner from White County High School who was killed by a drunk driver in her Senior year. Markie ran for the Macon County High Track team in 2007 (thru a TSSAA co-op program) and  Voyles won two State Championships for MCHS. Runners from 70 MSCCA member schools ran Thursday night. Macon County Girls placed 8th in their division of 21 teams, while the Macon Boys finished 16th in a division of 29 teams.
