Pulaski runners compete at state meet

Maroon boys finish 10th overall; girls are 21st


Lexington, KY. —

On the girls side of things, Assumption came away with the state title after tallying a race-low 44 points, 37 points ahead of second place Bowling Green. The Lady Maroons came home in the 21st position with 552 points, five spots better than their 2012 finish at the state meet. 
"Last year we came home with a 26th place finish, and our goal was to finish better, so in some respects, we accomplished our goal because we came home with a 21st place finish," told Lady Maroon coach Nancy New. "With the 2014 cross country season seen off in the horizon, there is much to be thankful for if you are a returning Lady Maroon.  We will work to bring down our times and study ways to finish better than our competition."
Whitney O’Bryan, a senior from Daviess County, beat the entire field, finishing 1st with a time of 18:09.
Devin Mayfield, a 7th-grader for the Lady Maroons, was the top local finisher in the race. Mayfield, competing in her first-ever varsity state meet, finished the 3.1-mile run in a time of 20:44 for 54th place.
Alyssa Hyden, a freshman at Pulaski County, wasn’t far behind Mayfield, as she came home in the 62nd position. Hyden’s time was 20:53.
The top runner for the Southwestern Lady Warriors was sophomore Ashley Phelps, who finished 140th with a time of 22:03.
Pulaski County’s remaining runners were: Sarah Burton (184th), Jean Weaver (209th), Raegan Ruby (210th), and Madi Rodgers (214th).
Somerset junior Tristan Krause was the only local runner to compete in the Class A Boys race. Krause, who finished 75th, had a time of 19:00.
