Pulaski boys place 3rd in Lexington Catholic Inv.

Lexington — The Pulaski County High School boys cross country team made another statewide statement in their third place finish in the Lexington Catholic Invitational at the New Horse Park state meet course.

Pulaski’s 164 points was third to St. Xavier’s 40 and region foe Madison Central’s 128 points. Southwestern finished 20th with 516 points.

Pulaski senior Mason Blevins led the way with a 19th place finish and a 16:59 clocking. Austin Hyden finished 29th with a 17:13 clocking, and Morgan Stevens placed 30th with a 17:16. Brennan Perkins placed 48th (17:34), Sam Smith placed 61st (17:44), Matthew Crawford placed 83rd (18:08) and Duncan Finch placed 115th (18:39).

“I am very proud of how we ran, Pulaski coach David Evans said. “We had a 44 second time gap and it was an impressive performance.  We beat a couple of teams ranked ahead of us, Cooper High School (ranked 4th in AAA) and South Oldham (6th in AAA).”

“We just need to continue to work hard these next couple of weeks to become the team that I know we can be,” Evans added.  “It’s not crazy to think that our region may have two teams competing for top 5 finishes at the state meet this year and that would shock a lot of people around the state.”

Southwestern High School junior Jordan Carrington had one of his best showings of the season with a 26th place finish and a 17:10 clocking. Also for Southwestern, Matthew Jones finished 111th (18:36), Daulton Ramsey finished 163rd (20:18), Logan Randall  finished 182nd (21:53) and Tanner Harris finished 186th (22:45).

On the girls side, the Pulaski girls team finished 13th with 345 points.

Pulaski freshman Alyssa Hyden led the Lady Maroons with a 23rd place finish and a 20:22 clocking, while seventh-grader Devin Mayfield finished 28th with a time of 20:38.

Also for Pulaski, Sarah Burton finished 90th (22:17), Sydney New finished 93rd (22:19), Raegan Ruby finished 135th (24:17), Madi Rogers finished 138th (24:33) and Jean Weaver finished 145th (25:00).

“Even though we finished 13th on Saturday next to Madison Central’s 8th place finish, we still saw a team goal (of winning the region) that can be claimed,” said Lady Maroons coach Nancy New.  “Five of the seven Lady Maroons set new PRs during Saturday’s race, and these girls are committed to continue to work hard as a team and individually in order to make their goal of a championship a reality.”  We just have two short weeks, with the Meet of Champions next Saturday; however, during our practice days we will focus, prepare, and work hard for region.”

Each race day this season has proven successful for this team,” New added.  “These ladies have a great deal of work ahead of them, but they have much success to celebrate.”

The Southwestern Lady warriors were led by Ashley Phelps with a 75th place finish and a time of 21:58, and Kaeona Phelps finished 127th (23:48).
