Led by three finishers in the top nine, the Camden High girls’ cross country team ran to their first win of the season by winning a six-team meet held at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site last Wednesday.
Camden led the way with 44 points followed, in order, by Richland Northeast (61), Sumter (76), The Governor’s School for Science and Math (84), Westwood (101) and Lugoff-Elgin (160).
Megan Goodrich paced the deep Lady Bulldog quad with a fifth-place finish, stopping the clock at 22:46. Madison Maddox of the Governor’s School for Math and Science led all runners to the finish line in a time of 22:10.
Camden’s Stephanie Areford came home in eighth place with a time of 24:28 while teammate Jordan Woody, who doubles as the Bulldogs’ placekicker on Friday nights, took a break from her football duties to finish in ninth place with a time of 24:35.
The Lady Bulldogs had four more finishers in the top 17 with Heather Woolard (25:05), Abigail McLaughlin (25:09) and Caroline Woodard (25:17) finishing in the 13th through 15th spots, respectively. Fanny Estrada placed 17th in a time of 25:27.
L-E was led by a 25th place finish from Jenalyn Miskin (27:29). Cameron Johnson (29:04) was 31st with Courtney Pack (29:23), Jordan Ard (31:6) and MacKenzie Wiseman (31:30) coming in 33rd, 35th and 36th place, respectively. Delaney Provow (31:32) and Bobbie Schermbeck (34:00) rounded out the L-E runners.
Camden head coach Pam Chickering said it was a good day, all-around, for the host Lady Bulldogs.
“It was a great event with all the teams and we were very happy with the results,” she said. “We did not expect to win the meet, but we were able to group together to get the points and finish strong.”
Chickering said meets such as this will help prepare her team for the Region 4-AAA championships to be held at Historic Camden on Oct. 23.
“The region will be strong again with most teams in the top 10 (in the state) as they were last year,” Chickering said. “We are continuing to work hard for region championships and lower state, in which we will qualify for state championships.”
Camden also won the junior varsity girls’ meet with Francesca Laschanzky coming home in first place in a race in which the Lady Bulldogs took the top six finishing spots.
Westwood took the boys portion of the meet with 41 points followed by Sumter (68), Lugoff-Elgin (73), Camden (79) and Lower Richland (137).
L-E’s Soren Johnson was the overall winner as he traveled the 3.1-mile course in a time of 18:24. Teammate Andrew Mills was four spots behind him in fifth at 18:56.
Camden, which is waiting on its top runner, Clark Joseph, to return to the lineup from a bout with mono, was led by Parker Robinson whose time of 19:20 was good for eighth place.
Following Robinson to the finish line for Camden were teammates Garrett Lawson (20:10), Kyle “K.P.” Cassidy (20:11) and Josh Thomas (20:15), who followed each other home in taking the 15th through 17th spots, respectively. Caid Coakley was 23rd with a 20:56. Jacob McGowen (21:29) and Brice Nichols (22:29) completed the list of Bulldog finishers.
The Demons also received top 30 finishes from Conner Tully (18th place, 19:37), Javier Polo (27th, 21:10) and Hunter Johnson (21:28). William Blankenship (21:35) and Dontrelle Johnson (22:04) rounded out the L-E entries.
