The Jones County middle school boys won their division for the fourth time this season.
“Because of the large numbers this year, we limited the varsity race to only the top 10 runners from each team. This race is becoming one of the biggest in the area, and I want it to continue to get bigger,” varsity coach Mike Denaro said. “I want to thank everyone who came out to support the runners, and a big thanks to the parents and volunteers who help make the meet a success.”
The Jones County varsity girls finished third in the meet, led by Kate Boland (22:14.41) and Kaitlyn Holder, who were eighth and ninth overall. Rounding out the top five for the Lady Hounds were Maria Boland at 23rd, Savannah Davis at 53rd and Meghan Brennan at 61st.
Bethanie Bailey of Veterans was the individual winner with a time of 20:13.34 on the 5K course behind and around Gray Station Middle School, leading her school to the team title. Union Grove High was second.
The Jones County varsity boys placed 12th. Union Grove won the meet, followed by Evans and Veterans. Evans’ Felipe Alatorre was the individual winner at 17:05.38.
