CAMDEN MILITARY ACADEMY’S Sam Lawing (bib number 604) makes the turn in front of Camden’s Garth Maree (bib number 405) in the opening stages of Tuesday’s cross country meet at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site.

Starting with a girls race contested in hot and humid conditions to the end of the boys’ portion of the event which ended in an early evening downpour, Indian Land swept both ends of Tuesday’s cross country meet hosted by Camden High at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site.

The field of competing teams was altered due to schools not being in session in and around the Midlands. In the end, the hosts were joined by the Camden Military Academy, Fairfield Central, Buford, Indian Land and Lancaster.

The Indian Land girls placed seven runners in the top eight finishers, led by race winner Mattie-Bail Tripp in a time of 23:37, to score a meet-low 17 points. Camden was second with 61 followed by Buford with 62 points.

CHS eighth-grader Mary-Ashton Blanks was the fastest to the finish for the Lady Bulldogs as she came home in ninth place in 26:33. Junior teammate McKenzie Taylor was next, in 10th, in a time of 28:07. Camden senior Eleni Patoulis (28:41) and sophomore Mell Boucher (28:43) finished 12th and 13th, respectively. Caroline Reames, a seventh-grader, finished 21st in 32:51.

Indian Land made it a clean sweep with the Warriors winning the nightcap with 34 points. CMA was second with 58 followed by Lancaster (71), Fairfield Central (92), Camden (109) and Buford with 139 points.

Indian Land’s Austin Reeves beat CMA’s David Venegas to the finish line by a nose to win the 3.1-mile race. Both runners were clocked at 18:31.

CMA senior Theodore Martin finished in eighth place in a time of 19:51 while sophomore teammate Sam Lawing was 11th with a final time of 20:18.

Camden High junior Garth Maree came in 12th place with a time of 20:22 followed by CMA sophomore William Hyatt (20:25) in 13th. Camden High junior Jacob Hann’s 20:56 time was good for 18th place while classmate Ben Battiata was 20th in a time of 21:22.

CMA senior Joseph Barriere (22:00), CMA junior Stephen Long (22:23) and CHS junior Dru Montgomery (23:02) came home in 24th, 27th and 28th places, respectively.
