FHS cross country girls roll in KIL, 7th in S.C.


After winning yet another KIL cross country title, would the state’s 2nd-ranked Farragut Lady Admirals “have the legs” to be competitive in a multi-state event just four days later?

According to FHS head coach Kellie Ivens, the answer was a definite “yes.”


“I was real pleased with them,” Ivens said of both her boys and girls teams after both finished among the top-10 at the Furman Invitational Saturday in Greenville, S.C. The Lady Admirals took seventh among a 33-team field featuring schools from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. The FHS boys, KIL runner-ups behind Webb, finished 10th among a 38-team field.

GIRLS

Six FHS girls finished among the top 80 out of 243 runners.

Andrea North finished 17th (20:46.75), Ellie Leggett was 33rd (21:14.26), Caroline Sneed took 38th (21:20.22), Christen Olson finished 51st, followed by Sarah Brinson (62nd) and Andrea Lindley (68th).

The Bearden Lady Bulldogs, who finished 16th as a team, had two girls among the top 80, led by Jenny Randolph in 22nd and Mary Randolph in 70th.

At KIL, four Lady Ads and one BHS girl earned All-KIL honors: Leggett was second, followed by Sneed in fourth and teammate Tiffany Whitney in fifth. North placed ninth.

J. Randolph edged Brinson by just over a second for 10th-place.

BOYS

Among 269 boys at Furman, Farragut’s Michael Koszela took 13th (16:56.11), followed by teammate Ryan Crews (62nd).

Billy Welsh’s 85th-place effort was tops for the Bearden boys, who finished 18th as a team.

At KIL, Koszela took fourth while Crews was eighth., earning both All-KIL honors.
