BHS boys cross country is No. 1

Farragut football and Bearden girls soccer aren’t the only westside teams ranked No. 1 statewide in fall high school sports.

Steve Prince’s Bulldog boys cross country team is ranked No. 1 after two prestigious meet wins.

Capturing the Victor Ashe/Knoxville Medicine Invitational Saturday, Aug. 29, at Victor Ashe Park among a 34-team field, the Bulldogs again responded last Saturday, Sept. 6, by finishing first among 36 teams at the annual Cherokee Classic along Cherokee Boulevard in West Knox County.

About his talent, Prince said, “I’ve been watching these guys run at West Valley [Middle School]” dating back to sixth grade. They’re really coming along and we’re just having a fun time.”

At Cherokee, “It was a blast beating Maryville [No. 3 finisher], it was great,” Prince added.

Individually, senior Sam Shaughnessy is leading the way, taking third among 297 runners at Victor Ashe and fourth at Cherokee among 324.

Bulldogs co-No. 2 runners Peter Migun and Tyler Freeman, both juniors, were immediate behind Shaughnessy at both events.

Migun was fifth at Victor Ashe and Freeman sixth, while Cherokee saw Freeman capturing fifth and Migun sixth.

Billy Miller, BHS No. 4, finished 12th at Cherokee after a 14th-place effort at Victor Ashe. Drew Crawford, team No. 5, was 19th at Victor Ashe and 25th at Cherokee.


The BHS girls, meanwhile, took seventh among 30 schools at Victor Ashe, then again finished seventh among 32 teams at Cherokee.

Rebecca Stover, only a freshman, set a team record at 19.57.3 in finishing fourth at Cherokee among 209 runners. “She broke the school record the first time she ran it,” Prince said.

Senior Ruth Hahn, overall No. 1 BHS runner, took 15th at Victor Ashe among 172 and was 23rd at Cherokee. Sophomore Alli Migun, BHS No. 2, took 25th at Victor Ashe and 46th at Cherokee.

Jackie Shultz, a sophomore, was 35th at Victor Ashe and 68th at Cherokee. No. 5 Fionne Wong, a senior, finished 59th at Cherokee and 67th at Victor Ashe.
