Last Saturday, the Boyle County boys’ and girls’ cross country teams ran the Chick-fil-A Invitational at Asbury College.

Sophomores Nancy Haddad (12th) and Annabelle Tarter (14th) were again at the front of the pack. Eight-grader Aubrey White continued her great running with 27th place. Freshman Maggie Powell ran her best race, placing 30th.

Sophomore Emery Larson (33th), and freshman Laykin Gatton (35th) finished right behind.

The girls placed 4th with an overall score of 92.

Sophomore Max Germann (12th) and junior Baron Wiley (13th) continued their great running with medals. Junior Wesley Allaham (31st) ran a great race. Senior Austin Rice (35th) and sophomore Cannon Bostick (51st) ran their first race after injuries earlier in the season.

Freshman Grayson Sumner (52nd) ran his best race, along with senior Alex Lockhart (54th).

The boys placed fifth with an overall score of 128.

Coach John Anderson was proud of how the team worked.

“It was a great meet for the team. There were a lot of PRs, and there were a lot of runners running their first race after injury. It’s good to get healthier going into the final few meets,” he said.

The Boyle County cross country team runs again this Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Greater Louisville Classic.
