Glasgow High School fared very well Saturday at the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Class A State Cross Country Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. The Scotties finished 13th as a team with 380 total points, while Marisa Moore, running solo for the Lady Scotties, finished 8th overall.
Carter Chavira led the Scotties by finishing 46th overall with a time of 18 minutes, 47 seconds. Zac Wheeler was three spots back in 49th and Auggie Brown finished in 56th place. Wheeler had a time of 18:51, while Brown ran a time of 18:58.
Andrew Thomerson finished 106th with a time of 20:16 and Gage Martin had a time of 20:51, good enough for 123rd overall.
Moore ran very well against some of the top runners in the state. She had a very respectable finish with a time of 20:05.
"I think nerves got to some of the kids today, Marisa for one," said Glasgow coach Mindy Sorrels. "She finished eighth and I am pleased with that. I feel the boys ran well, but nerves were definitely affecting how some of them started the race. I know Zac went out too fast on the first mile."
