Lexington’s Class 4A fifth-ranked girls cross country team scored its first major victory of the season on Saturday at the Lake Murray Invitational, edging top-ranked Stratford, 59-67, for top honors.
Look for the Wildcats to be moving up when the new coaches associations polls are released.
Haylee Love (19:34) and Meri Heneage (19:42) were Lexington’s leaders of the pack, finishing fourth and fifth, respectively. Katelin Killman (14th, 20:26), Val Felciano (15th, 20:27) and Allie Callari (24th, 20:49) offered solid scoring support.
The team effort was so strong that Cameron Shackleford’s solid run (30th, 21:18) was not needed in the final tabulations.
