Dreams do come true and, prayers get answered Last summer, one night while sleeping, Camden Military Academy head cross country coach John Heflin had a dream. In it, he said he remembers being told by God, by placing it in his spirit, that Heflin’s runners would win the state independent school athletic conference state championship. A few weeks later, when he met with the 2018 Spartan harriers, Heflin laid down the gauntlet to a team on which several members were running cross country for the first time.
