XC Recap - What a great week of running!

COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS

I really enjoyed the competition and camaraderie at the Walton County Championship. We are blessed to be in an area with some really good running and coaching. The course at LHS was tough but FUN – especially for spectators. We loved watching you tackle Devil’s Hill.

We had great results at County.

Our boys put 5 in the Top 10 – Chris, Teagan, Bryce Browne, Corbin, and Jayden – and took home the Walton County Championship! So awesome! This was a breakthrough race for Jayden. I can’t wait to see him on the track in the spring.  

Azalea won the County Championship on the girls’ side and Penelope was just outside of the Top 10 in 11th place.

Varsity ran some great times. Sam Bach had a FANTASTIC effort on a tough course.

MIDDLE SCHOOL STATE

Our middle school team travelled to Cochran for the state meet on Saturday. We had some great results there, as well.

Chris and Azalea both placed 4th in the state! Amazing accomplishment!

Teagan (19th) and Penelope (22nd) also received medals for top 25 finishes. We had some HUGE time improvements from last season. Emery dropped 3 and a half minutes from last year!! Teagan and Penelope also dropped a full minute from last year’s state meet. Azalea ran with the flu last year, so it probably isn’t fair to compare her times – ha!

Bryce Richardson had a great race at state – his best this season!
