CCHS cross country records tumble; team advances to TSSAA championship

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS Jets cross country teams just keep getting better!

The Oct. 11 race at Davis Cattle Ranch, Ringgold, GA, saw several CCHS records tumble as both girls' and boys' teams tackled the hay fields in great style. Ryan Bedgood set the varsity and senior class CCHS record. Bradley Mathis set the sophomore record. Kyle Lockwood set the freshman record and Chris Pendergrast set the junior record.

The team (Bedgood, Mathis, Buffkin, Wisor and Lockwood) set the school varsity team record, while the junior varsity team of Pendergrast, Shawn Foster, Aidan Morrison, Nathan Phillips and Ryan Tabor set the junior varsity team record.

Breanna Taylor set the CCHS junior record for the course. Lindsey Roysdon set the freshman record.

"Yes, the records are tumbling," said Coach Debra Markham.

Then there was the Oct.18 Front Runners race at Baylor School during fall break. While other students were vacationing, CCHS cross country teams trained and competed with style at the elite race sponsored by the Chattanooga Cross Country League (their championship race) where runners from both girls and boys teams finished in the top 50.

The climax for the season, though, was the Region 3 AAA State Qualifying Race Oct. 25, at Fort Bluff Camp, Dayton, TN.

CCHS Boys finished second to qualify and advance to the TSSAA State Championship Nov. 3, at Percy Warner Park, Brentwood.

The girls did not qualify, but finished fourth, some accomplishing best times for their 2012 season, led by freshman Lindsey Roysdon, juniors Brianna Taylor and Jennifer Hedgecoth, Caroline Cravens and Meghan Server, and sophomores Selinda Bryant and Taylor Hammons, missing third place by only 17 points.

Winning time for the boys' race was 16:26, but Ryan Bedgood came in third overall with a season best time of 16:57; Bradley Mathis 17:52; A.J. Page 18:19; Kevin Buffkin 18:29; Kyle Lockwood 18:34; Todd Wisor 18:37; and Landon Crawford 19:15.

"Both girls and boys teams have not let up on weekly mileage during the racing season, logging between 50 and 60 miles per week as part of their training. It appears this strategy has paid off for the CCHS Jets! We wish the team luck as they pursue a strong finish to the 2012 season at the TSSAA state championship," concluded Markham.
