The Knights ran through ankle-deep mud against top-level competition at the Eagle Classic held by Brown County High School. It rained the entire day creating a very muddy and slick course, resulting in slower than normal times for all 1,000+ competitors.
The Knights placed 4th in the AA race and were led by freshman Evie Noel who finished in 6th with a time of 21:48. Eden Siples was close behind in 10th place with a time of 22:20. Tierinee Bryan finished in 19th place with a time of 23:06.
Other finishers for the Knights in the varsity race included Yahaira Martinez (63rd – 25:01), Lindy Berry (69th – 25:29), Alysa Meyer (88th – 26:17), and Aspen Mullenix (91st – 26:24).
In the reserve race, Regina Rusin returned from a knee injury with a 87th place finish and a time of 28:20 and Brianna Langdon finished in 202nd place with a 31:43.
The Knights will race at the South Knox Invite next Saturday. Full results can be found at www.timingmd.net
