Halifax County High School cross country struggled in team competition in the Piedmont District regular season competition Monday, at Tunstall.

Halifax finished fourth on the girls side. Franklin County won with 25 points, followed by Tunstall with 46. The Comets had 91 points.

Halifax finished third on the boys side, with 77 points. Franklin County won with 23.

Kayla Waller was 16th in 27:38; while Tyra Murray was 17th in 27:54. Chloe Lacks (JV) ran a 28:59. Janae Hansen was 22nd in 29:00. Jessica Watts was 24th in 30:43.

Other Comet times included: Hannah Bush, 31:08; Maci Henderson, 25th, 31:24; Cheyenne McElroy, 37:25; Mackenzie Patterson, 41:33; Jamie Shelton, 41:51 and Mollie Conner, 42:01.

For the boys, Jax Bosiger took fifth in 18:23. Carlton Redd was 18th in 20:04; Josh Dawson was 21st in 20:36; Ethan Martin was 26th in 21:20.

“From an individual racer standpoint, this was one of our best races of the year. We saw quite a few PR’s out there today. We knew it was going to be a fast course and the team worked hard out there,” said coach David Riddle.

“Jax continued his outstanding year. This was his first top 5 in a big race after finishing in the top 10 or close to it in the other district meets. We were really impressed with the 18:23 and feel like he can move down from there. The guys team as a whole had a very impressive day,” said Riddle.

“On the girls side we are dealing with a few injuries that are keeping our overall effort a little lower than we would like. But we also saw some tremendous individual times there as well. As we get healthier we will see stronger team scores,” said Riddle.
