Beddoo leads the way for the W&L Eagles

 

Washington & Lee sophomore and rising star Kathryn Beddoo sure knows how to lead.  Her first two races have resulted in two wins, by a large margin.  Beddoo, the reigning Northern Neck District (NND) Champion looks poised for another great year.  Last Wednesday, on her home course she blew away the field and won by nearly a minute.  The race was a “Pre-Season NND Championship” meet.  The NND championship meet will be held again at Washington & Lee on Oct. 24.  

Beddoo finished in a time of 22:45. Not far behind her were her teammates Emma Oliver (freshman) and Anna Sisson (sophomore) who finished fourth and fifth.  Senior Taylor Lewis finished eight and freshman Serenia Thompson finished 13th to round out the Eagles top five.  The Lady Eagles won in a dominating fashion, placing their top five runners in the top 15.  The score was W&L-21, Lancaster-52, & Essex 56.  Northumberland did not have enough runners to fill a full team.

On Saturday, at the Pole Green Classic, Kathryn did it again, this time winning by 69 seconds.  “She has an unbelievable mindset for running, she makes it look easy,” Lady Eagles coach Cindy Flickinger said.  Oliver finished  sixth and Sisson ninth.  Lewis finished 20th and Thompson 29th.  The girls did just enough to edge out New Kent and finish second in the team standings.  “Our goal right now is to get our top seven runners running closer together and keeping them healthy; once that happens, big things can happen for these girls,” Flickinger added.  The Lady Eagles finished first in the NND last year and second in the Region “A” meet.     

On the boys side, their top five is starting to shape up.  Ronnie Cutler from Lancaster high school won the preseason meet last Wednesday.  But not far behind him, was junior Moses Oviedo who took second for the Eagles.  Senior Hudson Hutt finished fourth, sophomore Jacob Daiger fifth, sophomore Zach Bowen sixth and senior Emmanuel Valdez seventh.  The top five were 71 seconds part from one another.  Last year, the Eagles won the NND championship and finished third in the region.  “We know we can be pretty good, but we also know that Lancaster and Mathews are going to be good.  We are trying to make a name for ourselves this year,” Oviedo stated.  The score was W&L-24, Lancaster-34, Northumberland-71, and Essex-99.  W&L had their top five runners in the top seven positions and their top seven runners in the top 17.  “I think we can be better, once we get healthy and get back in to shape we have no where to go but up,” Hutt added.  Hutt, the lone All-Regional runner for the Eagles last year, had to miss a week of practice late in the preseason due to illness.  He is slowly regaining form and building his stamina back up.   

On Saturday Oviedo continued to be the leader for the Eagles finishing 10th overall at the Pole Green Classic.  Bowen finished 12th, Hutt 18th, freshman Hasan Gill 26th, and Freshman Alec Westall 44th.  The Eagle boys finished fourth and missed the podium by just one point.  

Both teams return to action today at Middlesex. The race will be held off campus at RCC Glens Campus.  Northumberland and King William will also be in attendance.  On Saturday both teams will also travel to the William & Mary Invitational.  The William & Mary course is also the Region “A” course.
