Richmond Middle School cross-country competed this Saturday, September 7th, at the Union City Invitational. The middle school competed against fourteen other teams, placing 7th as a team for the girls and 2nd as a team for the boys. The course length was 2.1 miles, which is longer than a normal 3k middle school course, so individual times were not accurate for a usual middle school race.
In the girls’ race, the team scored 152 points to receive 7th place. Keena Barker placed 4th overall with a time of 13:37. Jackie Orihuela placed in the top 30 with a time of 15:38, placing 23rd overall. Clara Noxon received a personal record, scoring a time of 19:11.
The top 5 Richmond runners for the girls were:
Keena Barker 13:37
Jackie Orihuela 15:38
Katy Peacock, 16:53
Allison Stout, 16:58
Clara Noxon 19:11
The boys team place 2nd overall, scoring 80 points as a team. The first Richmond runner, Alex Orihuela, placed 13th overall with a time of 13:46.0. Tommy Wilson achieved his goal this race by finishing without stopping to rest in a time of 20:26.
The top 5 Richmond finishers include:
Alex Orihuela 13:46.0
Jamie Pegg, 13:46.7
Greyson Farmer, 13:47
Brodie Morken, 13:52
