VHS Cross Country Team
Thursday, 20 September 2012

September 20--The VHS cross country teams ran on their "home field" on Wednesday, September 19 as they hosted their first home meet of the season.  It was exciting for the runners to feel the homefield advantage.  The boys' team placed 3rd out of 5 teams, falling to two AAA teams.  Tattnall boys placed 1st with 32 points; Southeast Bulloch placed 2nd with 41 points; Vidalia placed 3rd with 92 points; Bryan County was 4th with 109 points, and Montgomery County came in 5th with 143 points.  Trace Calloway continues as the lead Indian runner.  Calloway was 2nd overall with a personal best on the home course of 19:38.  Tyler Campbell was, once again, the 2nd Indian in with a time of 22:04.  Sterling James made his move this week to earn the 3rd position for the team just seconds behind Campbell in 22:07.  Robert Petty moved from 5th finisher to 4th in 22:14 and Will Harn finished the scoring positions with a time of 22:16.  The rest of the team finished in the following order:  Michael Joiner, Greg Johnson, McKenley Corbitt, Ben Everett, Carson Cato, Jake Everett, Drew Powers, Dalton Scott, Chason Collins.  Coach Humphrey reports, "The boys are running just like they need to run.  Only 12 seconds separated our 2nd through 5th finishers.  This type of "pack" running will serve us well in the region meet. All of the runners improved their times from the last time they were timed on the home course, some by as many as a four minute improvement."

    The VHS lady Indians placed 4th out of the 5 teams, falling to the AAA teams of Southeast Bulloch and Tattnall County and one team from our own region, Bryan County.  Southeast Bulloch was first in the meet with 22 points; Bryan County was second with 46 points; Tattnall finished 3rd with 71 points; Vidalia finished 4th with 100 points, and Montgomery County came in 5th place.  Jenna Wheeler led the lady Indians, finishing 8th overall in 27:44.  Kimberly Warren was second for the lady Indians in 29:38.  Abigail Hodges, new to the team, was the 3rd finisher in 31:33; Maja Mitchell, having competed only one other time, came in 4th in 33:06, and Abbie Chesser moved up to score for the Indians as the 5th runner with a time of 33:10.  Katelyn Achenbach finished in 33:40 and Carolina Thigpen was close behind in 34:11.  "All of the girls also improved their times when compared with the last time they were timed on the home course.  Some girls improved by as many as 7 minutes.  We are praying to stay healthy, working hard at practice, and watching the times drop each week.  It is so exciting to have a group of 7 lady runners.  They continue to make me proud," says Coach Humphrey
