Borland owns BWHS XC Record

Staff Report

Two Big Walnut High School Cross Country runners turned in excellent times at last weekend’s Thomas Worthington Invitational.

Freshman Colbi Borland’s time of 18:59.1 was good for 13th place in the 218-runner field. Borland’s time shattered the school record of 19:18.9 set by Lincoln Green when she placed 34th in the 2010 State Championship run at the Scioto Downs XC Course.

Junior Will Hefner led the Big Walnut boys team with a career best time of 17:21.2 to finish 75th out of 215 runners.

This coming Saturday, October 15, both teams will compete in the OCC Cross-Country Championship run at the Newark Evans Athletic Complex. The girls will race at 11 a.m. and the boys at 11:30 a.m.

Borland will attempt to become the first Big Walnut girl to win a conference cross-country championship in school history.

The last BW boy to win a conference meet was Micah Armbrust in 2008. The last (and only) time that Big Walnut won a team OCC cross-country championship was when the girls won in 2001.
