Took first place in their division at the regional contest in Centerville and received a bid to Nationals.
In a crazy weather day and a muddy course, the Camels responded with fire and intensity.
Knowing that times would be difficult to gauge with the conditions, we focused on place and strategy.
The Lady Camels timed their warm-ups perfectly and followed the plan of keeping sweats on and moving on the line to stay ready. The second part of the plan was how to attack the muddy areas of the course for maximum footing. It paid off. Sidney Reagor ran an incredibly smart race focusing on footing and gaining ground in key moments. Her come-from-behind finish was solidified by a speedy hill sprint that launched her into first place and claiming the region Champion title. This is the first time a Lady Camel has won region since Sara Hater did so in 2004. Allie Franzen continued chipping away at the lead pack with a 16th place finish, and from that point, the ladies rolled in closely. Noel Slone was close behind in 23rd place, Savannah Krift in 30th , and Devan Carrigan in 36th. Beam Kumkerd was tight on that pack in 39th, and Sophie Loesch held off other competitors in 41st. We knew we were facing a tight regional race, and it shows in our 5th place finish being only 4 points from 4th, and 6 points from 3rd. The 5th place finish put the girls in a state qualifying position for the first time in 6 years. Way to go Ladies!
In the varsity boys race, we had pretty much the same plan as the ladies: warm-up well and stay warm on the line, and be smart about the muddy areas on the course. Christian Slone once again finished as the Camels number one runner with a 6th place finish that was unchallenged. Freshman Noah Slone inched closer to his brother this week with an 18th place finish, and Jordan Hartig pounded on his heels in 23rd. Colton Conroy finished his final regional race in 35th with a great stride and finish up the hill with Anthony Ronnebaum (36) and Brennan Perkins (39) packing it in closely and holding off some important key runners for other teams. Corey Robinson rounded out the team in 52nd. The Camels finished 4th overall, earning a state qualifying berth for the first time in 3 years.
For the first time since 2010, we are taking both a full boys and full girls team to the state meet...what an accomplishment! These teams have worked hard to earn these spots, and it is their attitude, dedication, and drive that has put them on the road to state!
Cross Country Trimble County Backwood Invitational Saturday.
Many runners beat their goal times with help from great temps and hard work.
The boys started the day and set the stage for some fast mile splits. Christian Slone got out of the gate strong and maintained his 2nd place hold for the entire race. Sophomore Jordan Hartig used his year of experience and beat his time from last year's meet by over 1 minute, followed closely by Freshman Noah Slone who was just one place from an individual award. Freshman Adam Ruschman established himself as a competitor for a position in the Camel scoring pack, followed by Anthony Ronnebaum and Senior Alex Johnson who, after a year off of running, came out for a solid return. Our 1-5 split was at 3:26, which is a little high but with some added speed, can be dropped. Overall the boys finished 3rd, just ONE point from region rival Dixie in 2nd. It was exciting to see the pack mentality at play and younger Camels stepping up to cover some needed ground.
The Lady Camels stepped up to the line next, eager to put the past few weeks of hard week to the test. Sidney Reagor tried a steady approach from the line that served her well as she worked on chipping away at the leading regional runner from SK. Finishing second in the race, and just 18 seconds back, she set the groundwork for the next match-up. Allie Franzen once again ran consistent miles and earned an eighth place finish, and new-comer Abbie Loesch follwed right on her heels in 9th. Having 3 ladies in the top 10 at our first meet is an exciting prediction of the great things to come this season. Devan Carrigan and Sophie Loesch rounded out the scoring positions for the Lady Camels, both with strong finishes and determined strides. Our 1-5 split sits at 3:46, which like the boys, can be dropped with time. The Ladies finished 2nd, just TWO points from the winning team.
With determination and perseverance, both Camel Teams will no doubt be earning state berths at the end of the season!
