Foxes girls qualify for Cross Country Championship

Last Wednesday, it was a Fox celebration at Loriella Park, in Fredericksburg. After posting a fourth place finish at the Region I Cross Country Championship, junior Haley Armentrout will lead the Foxes girls’ cross-country team to the State Cross Country AA Championship, at Great Meadow State Course, in The Plains, on Nov. 12. Her goal is to make the elite top 20, and all-state honors.

While Lafayette senior Heidi Peterson took home the individual women’s honors with  a time of 20:11.8, Battlefield District Champion Armentrout posted a time of 20:28. Out of 21 Region I high schools, the Lady Foxes placed third. Grafton, and Jamestown placed first and second respectively, while the following schools

completed the list of Region I state qualifying schools: Lafayette, 4th; New Kent; Courtland; James Monroe; Bruton; Prince Edward. Saturday’s state competition will mark the second time in three years that the Foxes girls’ cross country team has reached the prodigious plateau.

Thrilled with the opportunity to compete in the state championship, Fox cross-country head coach Cathy Binder said, “The girls team had a mission this year to win districts and make it back to states.  Through hard work and dedication they have accomplished both goals and look to rack up one more Top 10 in the state.  With the miles they have logged, and their strong never-say-die attitude I think they will finish this last task.”
Midway through the race, packed in tight, while battling for position, Armentrout actually maintained the lead, but towards the latter part of the race, Peterson rallied to take the lead and eventually win the race, six seconds ahead of Bruton sophomore, Michaela Cody (20:18.6). New Kent senior, Becca Eudailey barely managed to hold off Armentrout for the third spot.

As for the rest of the Lady Foxes, they finished with the following times: Anna Knicely (20th, 21:53.4); Miranda Green (24th, 22:20.3); Lindsey Armentrout (27th, 22:30.1); Carley Armentrout (39th, 23:20.0); Kristen Hornbaker (23:22.3); Nicole Brem (49th, 24:09.6). Five women from the Battlefield district finished in the top 15 state qualifiers.

Out of a crowded field of 83 runners from across the region, Foxes senior Tyler Lumpkin finished 24th, with a time of 18:21.4.  For two miles he battled with the group that ended up in the top 15.

For the district, the Bay Rivers area dominated the meet, with the Lafayette men’s team winning their second Regional title in a row. The Lady Rams will accompany their male counterparts with a fourth place finish. Lafayette captured both women’s and men’s individual championships in the form of Peterson, and Kurtis Steck respectively. Other Bay Rivers schools qualifying for the state championship include the York boys’ team, Grafton (girls & boys), and Jamestown (girls and boys).

Along with King George, the following Battlefield District schools will feature teams in the state championship: Chancellor (boys team); Courtland (boys & girls); Culpeper (boys); Spotsylvania (boys); James Monroe (girls).
