Cross country teams take Chattanooga by surprise

It was a brand new course at Woodland Park in Chattanooga on Tuesday, when the CCHS cross country teams ran, as 31 boys teams and 15 girls teams from Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee converged to this particular race.

The Lady Jets finished first among the region teams and fifth overall, while the Jets won against all of their region competitors and finished second in front of every team except the strong Dalton, GA, runners.

"The teams, this year, are running a pretty tough schedule. We'll be in our region with seven races beginning in September and lasting until the Region 3AAA championship the end of October. Both teams are looking strong this year. We've come off a summer of conditioning with some amazing athletes. If we can finish in the top three teams (there are 10 our region), we secure state championship race berths. That's the goal," said Coach Pat Koehl.

Senior Amelia McCoy did it again with a fifth-place overall finish among the 134 runners and 15 teams in 21:59. Sophomores Maggie Bernabei, Olivia McCoy and Dimi Iles finished 26th, 38th and 44th overall, respectively.

Victoria Ports ran fifth for the team, while Amanda Server finished sixth. Sydney VanWinkle also finished.

All six of these girls, excluding VanWinkle, were part of the 2008 state team.

"Injuries have plagued us early on, but I believe we are about to get through those and start running as a team like I know we have," said Coach Pat Koehl.

The Jet runners were ready for the competition.

Junior Dustin Seney finished 19th out of 216, while junior teammate Zach Burgess finished 26th. Both ran 18:50 and 18:58, respectively. Senior Matt Johnson finished third for the team and 30th overall in 19:07.

Senior newcomer Phillip Wagner finished fourth on the team and 53rd overall in 19:21. Matt Pennycuff finished in 54th place in 19:35, and Ernest Retzer ran with a time of 21:21.

  • The truth about driver distance

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
