Amelia McCoy qualifies for cross county state meet

The Cumberland County cross country teams ran in the Region 3-AAA Championships last Thursday on the hilly Chickamauga Dam 5 kilometer course on a cool, windy afternoon.

The Jets finished seventh, while the Lady Jets were fifth, missing qualifying as a team for the state meet by only two places.

The first runner for the Jets was T.J. Noel in 32nd place, with a school varsity course record time of 19:50. Only a sophomore, T.J. has set CCHS course records on six courses this season.

The next three Jet runners finished with the same time of 21:01. They were sophomore Drew DeLorenzo in 46th place, sophomore Kirby Kreger 47th and senior Robbie Krumpols in 49th. Krumpols set the senior class record.

The Jets' fifth runner was sophomore William Seney at 21:16 in 52nd place.

He was followed by yet another sophomore, Evan Sells in 55th place at 21:27 and freshman Ethan Pierce in 64th at 22:45.

The Jets' cross country team had an outstanding season as they set CCHS varsity team records eight times this season.

Assistant coach Ray Myers said, "I am very proud of our young runners. They ran hard all season and improved every meet. Most of our runners are freshmen and sophomores and that looks really promising for our program. Go Jets."

Taking fourth place in the girls race and qualifying for the Tennessee State cross country championships was Cumberland County's own super freshman runner, Amelia McCoy.

Her time of 21:53 ranks her as an elite runner according to the Web site "Tennessee Runner."

She has set school varsity and freshmen course records at every meet the lady Jets have run on this season!

McCoy led the Lady Jets to a fifth-place finish in one of the most talented regions in the state. The Lady Jets' next runner was sophomore Courtney Koehl who just missed qualifying for state in 14th place with a time of 23:22.
