Two times a charm for Battlefield District champion Foxes

Lady Foxes continue to make history. Last Wednesday, at Culpeper High School, the Foxes girls’ varsity cross-country team dominated the Battlefield District championship meet to win the coveted crown for the second consecutive year.


Under the coaching auspices of Cathy Binder, the Lady Foxes have held the trophy three out of the last four years. It’s apparent that Binder has the Midas touch when it comes to coaching cross-country sports. “It was great to see the hard work and determination be rewarded in a district win,” Binder said.  “The boys were focused and driven just missing a regional berth.  I am proud of all that ran at districts giving 100% on a rare hot and humid day.”
 The Foxes, led by individual champion Haley Armentrout, placed first as a team with an average time of 1:47.58.96. Armentrout easily dominated seasonal nemesis, Courtland Cougar Victoria Parent (2nd place, 20:40.61), and Spotsylvania Knight, Emmie Schmitt (4th, 20:38.23).
Armentrout’s district time is actually 10 seconds faster than her Regional time for last year. The Foxes girls finished third as a team last year.
Other Foxes girls who finished in the top 15 included: 5. Kristen Hornbaker, 21:39.71; 6. Ashley Perkin, 21:49.23; 11. Lindsey Armentrout, 22:04.54; 12. Anna Kniceley, 22:07.38; 15. Tabitha Kim, 22:35.55.
Courtland was the Foxes’ closest competitor with a time of 1:55:04.03.
On Wednesday, the Cougars will join the Foxes, along with third place Chancellor, and fourth place Eastern View at the Region I meet at Loriella Park, in Spotsylvania.
The meet’s top 15 runners, and top four schools will be featured along with the top Regional teams in the area, at the upcoming Region I championship.
As for the boys, Spotsylvania Knight, Ted Bailey won the individual championship with a time of 17:25:30. Christian Koon was the lone Region qualifier with an 11th place finish (18:26.07). “It is rare to have a freshman be all district,” Binder said. “Christian Koon is a rare talent that will hopefully repeat Haley’s performance of all district all 4 years.”
Lady Fox Nicole Brem won the girls’ junior varsity individual cross-country championship with a time of 20:15.85. Brem’s teammates, Alexandra Nette (24:40.08) and Madison Mading (24:43.66) finished fifth and sixth respectively.
Chancellor male runner, Logan Simpson won the boys’ individual championship with a time of 19:15.83. Kyle Knepshield was the Foxes top runner with a fifth place time of 19:56.58. Knephield’s teammate, Dominic Rosa, finished seventh with a time of 20:10.71.
As a team Chancellor finished first, while the Foxes placed second.
Next season, in light of Culpeper moving into the Evergreen District, the site of the District championships is likely to change to a different venue.
