Edmonson Voice Sports:
The boys and girls cross country teams ran in the KHSAA Regional meet on Saturday, October 26th at Ephram White Park in Bowling Green where the boys team finished 4th overall, qualifying them for the State Cross Country Championship.
Finishers for Edmonson County were Lane Lindsey (13th), Logan Brooks (17th), Blake Garrett (20th), Zach Holt (33rd), Jarrett Prunty (34th), Jonah Miller (35th), and Wade Luttrell (46th).
Our boys have had a great season and have really stepped up this year," said head coach Brad Meredith. "We won our district meet and qualified for the state meet this season. I really didn’t think we would be this competitive this year as a team after losing our two seniors last year-- Jacob Cena and Eli Ruth, but this team has been great to coach. They have worked hard and deserve the opportunity to compete at the State meet,” he said.
The girls team finished 6th, just missing out on qualifying as a team. Caroline Parsley qualified for the state meet as an individual placing 13th , running a personal best time of 22:51 for the 3.1 mile race. Other finishers were Emma Grace Cena (19th), Morgan Vincent (29th), Harley Meredith (34th), Lilly Miller (36th), Abby Logsdon (43rd), and Addison Browning (44th).
“Our girls team ran the best race they could have run," Meredith said. "Every one of our girls set a personal best time today. You can’t be too disappointed in that. Our goal was to qualify as a team for the state meet and they gave everything they had to try to accomplish that goal. We just came up a little short. I’m proud of these girls, they have worked hard this season and have been enjoyable to coach,” he added. "Caroline ran one of the toughest races she has ever run. She really left it all on the course. After the race she was laying flat on the ground, she didn’t have anything left. She is really deserving of the opportunity to compete at the state meet. She has put in a lot of work over the summer and during the off season and it paid off for her.”
