Bluestone cross country boys, girls making improvements
SoVaNow.com / October 24, 2012The Bluestone cross country team completed its regular season schedule last Wednesday in a quad meet with visiting Goochland, Randolph-Henry, and Cumberland.

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.

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.
