Whitman’s Evan Woods, B-CC’s Nora McUmber among Md. cross-country champs
By Jason Butt

PARKTON, Md. — Whitman senior Evan Woods and Northwest senior Diego Zarate have built a rivalry as Montgomery County’s top two cross-country runners. However, Zarate had maintained an edge, coming out unscathed throughout the year in each head-to-head meeting.

That changed at Saturday’s Maryland 4A state championship at Hereford High School, with Woods finally notching a victory — the biggest to date during his high school running career. Woods rounded into the final turn of the daunting three-mile course, ultimately holding on to an individual state title in 15 minutes 49.1 seconds. It was the first time all season Woods defeated Zarate, and it came at the biggest time of the year.

“It’s by far the best cross-country feeling I’ve ever had,” Woods said. “It’s the best running feeling ever. It was a hard race. There were a lot of good guys in this field. They took it out hard, and this is a course that will beat you up on the second half.” Read More

Michael Wegner hurt his knee during a long California hiking trip last summer, an injury that sidelined him until mid-September. The Loyola Blakefield senior said he didn't really regain his top form until about two weeks ago..

But Wegner showed everyone he's back by scoring an impressive victory at the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association championship meet on Wednesday at Oregon Ridge Park.

Wegner's victory led No. 5 Loyola to its sixth straight A Conference team title. Wegner, a senior, hurt his right knee while hiking in the Sierra Nevadas. He suffered patellar tendinitis and missed about five weeks. Read More

Many area athletes competed at the WV State meet on Saturday at Cabell-Midland High School.  The conditions for all races were rather sloppy with much rain falling the night before and cold mist falling during the races.  In the girls AA/A race history was set with the most female participants having a total of 100 girls participating in the race. 

Also the AA/A girl’s race was the closest and most interesting race of the day with Frankfort’s Junior Julianna Butcher battling back and forth with the defending state champ Alicia Parsons of Grafton.   Unfortunately on the track Alicia Parsons pulled ahead to narrowly beat Julianna to the finish as the State Champ in a time of 20:09. Julianna finished in a time of 20:13. 

This was Alicia’s second consecutive state title.  The state runner-up title was Julianna’s highest finish and her third All-State finish. 

The Frankfort girls team finished an impressive 3rd place at the state meet.  Freshman Sarah Collett ran a personal record 22:38 to finish 38th. Read More

McDonogh girls run away with A Conference cross country championship

Top-ranked McDonogh left little doubt that its undefeated Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference regular season would bode well for a stellar showing in the league championship meet Wednesday afternoon at Oregon Ridge Park..

The Eagles (34 points) won going away, beating second-place Notre Dame Prep (99) by a whopping 65 points in an impressive showing for coach Jeff Sanborn's group that placed five runners among the first 13 finishers.

"By the third day of practice this summer, we had eight girls running 8 miles each," Sanborn said about claiming the program's first title since 2010. "That's when I really thought we had something. That had never been done before at our school."

Junior Taylor Hare (third, 19:27) was McDonogh's top finisher, crossing the finish line well behind individual champion Sophie Gitlin (18:37) of Bryn Mawr and runner-up Emily Craig (19:18) of Maryvale. Read More

Lang, Heydrick run way to Howard County cross country titles

By Tim Schwartz, howardcountysports@patuxent.com
Oakland Mills junior Britt Lang knew what she was up against..

Centennial's Shreya Nalubola, Lang's main competitor at the Howard County Cross Country Championships Tuesday at Centennial High School, is known for being a notoriously strong finisher. Earlier this fall, at the Howard County Invitational on the same course, it was Nalubola who edged Lang by two seconds in a sprint to the finish.

This time, though, Lang was ready for it.

"She normally comes through at the end of the day," Lang said. "But it was definitely a goal to finally be on the other end of that."

Lang delivered a performance to remember, pulling away from Nalubola — the two-time defending county champion — in the final 800 meters to win her first county title in 19 minutes, 4.75 seconds. Nalubola finished second in 19:18.35   Read More

Special to The Gazette

A typical high school cross country course measures out to five kilometers in length. In Saturday's Montgomery County Cross Country Championships, the boys' race ended up being decided by a matter of millimeters.

Northwest High School's Diego Zarate posted a time of 15 minutes, 47.47 seconds to edge Walt Whitman's Evan Woods by .22 seconds to claim the individual crown at Bohrer Park, next to Gaithersburg High School.

Zarate held a lead of at least a few seconds for much of the race, but started to slow down near the finish line before nearly losing out to a tremendous closing burst and lean from Woods.

“I just took off from the flag all the way down at the end, and in the last 10 meters I was just trying to focus and I guess I got distracted,” Zarate said. “I guess I slowed down, and I should have been more focused and ran through [the line], but I guess it worked out still.”

Race officials at the finish line made the call that Zarate had eked out the victory, but Vikings coach Steve Hays requested that they review the video of the finish before results became official. After taking a closer look at the footage, the officials' ruling was confirmed.

“I didn't see the finish because I was out there screaming and yelling, but Evan told me he out-leaned him,” Hays said. “I went to bat for him trying to do the best I could, but the camera said otherwise Read More

BOONSBORO — Boonsboro's Haley Wright made it 3-for-3 at major cross country invitationals this season, winning the small school girls title at Saturday's Frank Keyser Invitational on her home course.

Wright clocked 18 minutes, 8.1 seconds to beat Liberty's Sarah Rinehart by 7.7 seconds. The Warriors took third place out of six teams with 62 points. Liberty won the title with 34 points, followed by Century with 56 points.

Wright won the Interstate Classic at Clear Spring and the Mountain Run at Woodsboro (Md.) Park earlier this season.

Wright and teammate Meggan Grams — making her season debut after missing three weeks with a foot injury — had their eyes on the Boonsboro course record of 16:58.9, but that wasn't in the cards. Read Article by Herald Mail Media
