The competition was loaded. There were a lot of high quality teams Saturday. Missing Jacob Krous (IR) didn’t help. Christopher Lee was our top runner for the second meet in a row (18:28). He continues to run well, and the freshman is looking tough. Seventeen runners had their season best.

GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY

Big Walnut finishes 9th place at Otterbein University High School Invitational

Saturday, September 15, 2018 noon

Points: 211

Meet Recap: 1) Springboro 51; 2) Dublin Coffman 77; 3) Gahanna Lincoln 89; 4) Pickerington Central 111; 5) Olentangy Orange 119; 6) Olentangy Berlin 165; 7) Westerville Central 190; 8) Buckeye Valley 209; 9) Big Walnut 211; 10) Parkersburg South 245; 11) Dublin Scioto 289; 12) Central Crossing 393

Twelve of the twenty-four girls ran their season best or personal record (PR) Saturday. Colbi Borland won the race for the girls (19:13 PR). She continues to look strong as we head into the final meets of the season. Chloe McKenzie was our number two girl, and she ran a great race (22:11 PR). Our finish would have been a little higher; unfortunately Grace Unger suffered an injury and was unable to complete the race. We are sure we would have moved up two more spots had she been able to race like she is capable. With the competition of this meet, it proves the girls are still in very good position to challenge for the OCC-Capital title, and that is our number one goal.

Rest of the team results: Sierra Sanders 22:42; Hannah Unger 22:46; Alina Pecci 23:56; Jaiden Hilton 24:15; Annika Anderson 24:50; Mackenna Ames 25:19; Celia Sutton 25:38; Sydney Foxworthy 25:46; Jojo Lucas 26:06; Riley Anderson 26:45; Abbey Danne 27:02; Addie List 27:04; Amber Hall 27:25; Mia Smith 27:33; Ava Walker 27:35; Hannah Moroz 27:41; Trinity Glenn 28:09; Sienna Coomes 28:35; Kaylene McGowan 31:15; Fiona Lariviere 33:15
