Bluestone cross country boys, girls making improvements

SoVaNow.com / October 24, 2012
The Bluestone cross country team completed its regular season schedule last Wednesday in a quad meet with visiting Goochland, Randolph-Henry, and Cumberland. Against their district rivals, the Baron boys improved all their times, while finishing third close behind R-H in second. Goochland ran away with first place, while Cumberland did not have enough boys to compete as a team.

Daniel Pittard continues to lower his times as he led the Barons with a 10th place finish with a time of 20:25 on the 3.1 mile race. Aaron Moody finished 15th overall with a time of 21:37, followed by Josh Balducci, Matt Oberholtzer and Joseph Grendahl to complete the team score qualifiers.

Others runners are Avery Gupton, Matt Gilliland, Jeremy Balducci, Watt Pittard, Tyler Nutter, Darius Baskerville, Hunter Gates, Zach Ellis, Antwaun Tucker, Josh Rawson, Erick Houston, Gary Hatcher and Nick Sullivan.

After the boys competed, the Baron ladies finished second behind Goochland and ahead of R-H in third and Cumberland in fourth. The Baron girls were led by fourth place overall finisher Chantia Burchett, 13th place Taylor Burke, 14th place Peyton Moore, 15th Maggie Brown, and 16th Kristyn Owen. Other runners were Morgan Bohannon, Diamond Watson, Esscence Pulliam and Hayley Newcomb.

Both teams advance to this week’s James River District tournament meet in good position to finish in the top echelons of the district, which will advance them to regional play.
