Cross Country excellence

By Mike Forster

  The Jefferson Forest cross country teams showed that they continue to be a force in the world of running.  The Forest ladies won the Region III crown for the fourth straight year, while their male counterparts took second (behind William Byrd). The ladies were paced by Leigha Schimmoeller (shown below), who earned second place in the region.  She was closely followed by third-place Hannah Owen and fourth-place Mary Deis.  Liberty’s Kennedy Flynn was ninth.  On the guys’ side, the team was paced by Justin Resendes, who finished ninth for a balanced team.  Staunton River’s Stuart Robertson nabbed second place.  At States, Robertson and Schimmoeller would both medal.  At the team level, the Lady Cavs earned seventh and the Cavs finished as the ninth best squad.
