October 24--ImageThe VHS cross country teams hosted and participated in the final meet of the season before the region meet on October 30. Seven area teams competed in the meet.  In the boys' race, West Laurens was first, Toombs Co was 2nd, Vidalia was 3rd, Bryan County was 4th, East Laurens- 5th, and Montgomery County -6th (Appling County only had 4 runners, not enough to score a team).  Trace Calloway finished 2nd overall only two seconds behind the overall winner.  Calloway posted his best time of the season with an 18:32 on one of the hardest courses.  Sterling James was the 2nd Indian to finish with his own personal best time of 20:50.  Robert Petty moved up to the third scoring position with his best time of 20:54.  Greg Johnson finished as the 4th Indian in 21:12 and Will Harn finished the scoring postions with 21:20. The rest of the team finished in the following order: Michael Joiner (21:40), Ben Everett (22:35), McKenley Corbitt (22:46), Carson Cato (22:57), Tyler Campbell (23:11), Drew Powers (23:42), Dalton Scott (25:15), Chason Collins (26:49), Jake Everett (26:55).  Most of the guys posted "personal bests" at the meet.

 

    The lady Indians came in 4th place behind West Laurens, Bryan County, and Toombs County, respectively.  Jenna Wheeler finished as the first lady Indian once again and 6th overall with a time of 25:22. Abigail Hodges came in as the 2nd lady Indian with a time of 27:41.  Kimberly Warren was 3rd for the team in 28:03.  Abbie Chesser scored as the 4th lady Indian with a time of 30:43 and Carolina Thigpen finished the scoring with a time of 31:04.  Katelyn Achenbach finished just two seconds behind Thigpen in 31:06.  Almost all of the girls posted "personal bests" with their finishing times as well.  Coach Terri Humphrey speaks of the times, "Hopefully, we are peaking at just the right time.  Now is the time to run your best.  With only seven runners representing each team at region, the scores could surely go either way.  I hope and pray we run our fastest times ever.  No matter what the outcome, these runners have improved with each race and I am proud to have each one of them run to represent Vidalia High School."
