Decatur cross country squads take first in meet

(Oct. 3, 2014) The Stephen Decatur cross country teams earned victories in the five-school meet on Sept. 24 in Ridgely.

“The teams were some of the teams that are traditionally in the top half of the Bayside Conference,” said Decatur Coach Jody Stigler. “I thought that both (Decatur) teams did pretty good.”

The Lady Seahawks scored 26 points to take first place. Queen Anne’s finished second with 68 points and North Caroline was third (71).

Decatur senior Jenna Reimer crossed the finish line first, completing the race in 19:37. Juniors Rachel Savage and Alison Alvarado placed fourth (21:18) and fifth (21:33) overall, respectively.

Peyton Dunham, a sophomore, finished seventh (21:45) and junior Katie Hofman came in ninth (21:50).

The Decatur boys’ team tallied 40 points. Queen Anne’s logged 57 points for second place and North Caroline took third (76).

Scoring points for Decatur were seniors Parker Harrington (fourth, 17:19) and Jake Gaddis (fifth, 17:23), freshmen Jack Reimer (eighth, 18:10) and Matt Alvarado (11th, 18:26) and sophomore Jared Massey (12th, 18:46).

“Our girls did well in terms of scoring. I still think that we can score a little bit better if we become more consistent from runners 2-7,” Stigler said. “I thought that the boys did well also. Again, consistency is key. Moving forward, we want to concentrate on having more runners tightly bunched, running toward the front of the pack.”

Decatur will host the next meet, Wednesday, Oct. 8, at 4 p.m.
