September 23, 2011St Clair Athletics
Participating at the Lutheran North Invitational on Sept. 15, St. Clair’s boys finished third out of 13 teams and the girls were seventh out of 15 teams in cross country competition.
There was no junior varsity race, meaning all the runners competed in a varsity boys and girls race. The top 100 finishers in each race earned a medal.
“The team goal since the beginning of the year was for all 16 girls to finish this race without walking and they were able to do that, so we’re happy,” said St. Clair Coach Ben Martin.
Austin Gotway had St. Clair’s top performance, finishing second in the boys race in a time of 17:26. Dylan Pattillo placed fifth in 17:36.
Other medalists for the Bulldogs were Shane Schmidt (23rd in 18:48), Dylan Corbett (31st in 19:05), Coty Declue (35th in 19:17), Phillip Whitaker (44th in 19:24) and Kyle Avery (88th in 20:34).
Lyndsay Hardin paced the Lady Bulldogs by finishing eighth in the girls race in 20:56. Other medalists for the Lady Bulldogs were Sam Selby (29th in 22:49), Kelly Barns (32nd in 22:57), Danielle Wagner (36th in 23:05), Nicole Souders (47th in 23:54), Olesya Stadnichuk (49th in 24:09), Kim Pelton (68th in 25:20), Brenda Deaton (70th in 25:27), Hannah Kierns (91st in 26:31) and Jessica Hardin (93rd in 26:46).
St. Clair competed Sept. 10 at the Forest Park Invitational.
Running in the varsity girls, white division, Hardin finished in 12th place in a time of 20:30.
“Lyndsay ran a very technically sound race,” said Martin. “She ran even splits and was able to pass the girls slowing down.”
Competing in the boys varsity green division against mostly larger schools, the Bulldogs finished in 32nd place.
Gotway paced the Bulldogs by finishing in 106th place in a time of 17:20.
Also running for the Bulldogs were Pattillo (114th in 17:30), Declue (219th in 19:18), Whitaker (22nd in 19:24), Corbett (237th in 20:35), Bill Guyton (241st in 21:05) and Dustin Harland (242nd in 21:08).
