Lady Dragon Runners Take 4th Place at Southlake Invitational

ccxcThe 12th Annual Southlake Invitational was held Saturday at Bob Jones Park after a two-hour rain and lightning delay.

This has become one of the state’s supreme races and it was only the second year for runners to compete at this new venue. Some of Carroll’s top boy and girl runners had a scheduled week off and did not compete. Varsity Girls took 4th place and Varsity Boys took 10th.

Carroll Cross Country Head Coach Justin Leonard said, “We would like to thank all of our volunteers, the Southlake Parks and Recreation Department and all of the participants/coaches for their help with this event. This was a great meet for us and allowed us the opportunity to run some of our JV runners in the varsity division, which will help us in the future. We were really proud of the way our kids competed.”

Dragon Varsity Girls Take 4th Place
The Varsity Girls were led by freshman Rima Toure in 34th place (20:13), sophomore Riley Lackey in 41st (20:21), sophomore Kelley-Anne Richards followed in 49th place (20:36), freshman Lydia Lo placed 55th (20:46) and freshman Delaney Drefs took 61st place (20:51) to complete the 5 scoring positions. There were a total of 184 varsity girl runners.

Dragon Varsity Boys Take 10th Place
The Varsity boys team took 10th, led by freshman Nate Lannen 52nd with a time of 17:06, sophomore Henry Gardner was 53rd (17:07), sophomore Vishnu Nair took 71st place (17:22), senior David Archer came in next for the Dragons with a 88th place finish (17:35) and sophomore Hayden Coleman took the 95th spot (17:39) to complete the top five Carroll runners out of 232 varsity boys participants.
