Knox County’s best in cross country crowned
Both FHS teams 2nd, while both BHS teams 3rd

While the Farragut Lady Admirals cross country team barely missed out on another KIL championship, both the FHS and Bearden programs were models of consistency at the three-mile Victor Ashe Park course Thursday, Oct. 14.

Both Farragut teams claimed second-place finishes, while both BHS teams were third.

Webb was boys champ (38).

Falling two points short to girls champ West (47-45), the Lady Admirals were led by Andrea North’s third-place finish (20:06).

“I’m pretty happy,” North said of her run. “The West girls are very strong this year. One of ‘em actually got me at the end. Me and Julie Ann (Fenstermaker) stayed together pretty much the whole time and encouraged each other.”

Fenstermaker’s fifth-place finish (20:20) continues a string of successful runs for the senior late in the season.

“I had a really good kick at the end,” she said. “I’ve been working really hard this season.

“I had, like a breakthrough race the last time we ran here, the Volunteer Invitational, so that gave me a lot of confidence to really push myself and help me believe that I can do it,” Fenstermaker added. “(In early October) I ran a PR (personal record of 19:14) at Cherokee. It just shocked me that I could do that. I had no idea I was capable of that. It’s still sinking in.”

Bearden’s Jenny Randolph, who finished fourth, said her goal was to finish in the top 10.

“I’m very happy with it, it was a great surprise,” Randolph said, adding that her 20:12 time “was my best time for this course by twenty-five seconds” in three Victor Ashe Park races. “I was about seventh or eighth for about the first half of the race. And then I kind of moved up a little bit in the last mile.”
