Cross country finally gets a meet completed

After a complete cancellation of one meet and a pair of incomplete meets, the SCHS cross country team of Cindy LeMaster finally got a complete meet in on Sept. 28 when they claimed a win at a three way meet in Claxton. 

The team also participated in a makeup of the Ray Miller Invitational at Magnolia Springs in Millen on Sept. 30, but without a complete team.

The Red and White will next be in action on Oct. 11 when it hosts a meet at its new home course at the Black Creek Scout Reservation on Poor Robin Road.  The meet is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. 

On Thursday, the team totaled 20 points to best Claxton’s 35. 

Host Claxton did not have enough runners (5) to register a team score. Of 15 runners, SCHS senior Katelyn Alvarez claimed the overall first place with a time of 22:24.

Said LeMaster of the day, “This was a hot race. It was 95 degrees and the course was very similar to ours at the high school. No shade. The girls were exhausted!”

Behind Alvarez were Mary Ann McCord (3rd, 25:48); Abigail Stockwell (4th, 30:05); Kassidee Hutchison (5th, 30:35); and Destiny Simpson (7th, 37:45).

With much better weather in Millen on Saturday, “perfect” according to LeMaster, the Ray Miller was much more comfortable. As there was one runner out sick and others with prior commitments, SCHS did not qualify as a team as there were not five runners.

This time all came in under 30 minutes -- a must if they are to win a sixth consecutive region title.

Out of 34 girls, Alvarez was once again the top runner with a time of 21:35. Other times included McCord at 24:23 and Stockwell at 29:36.

Competing in the meet were Burke County, Washington County, South Effingham, Southeast Bulloch, Jenkins County, Metter, and Edmund Burke Academy.
