Dragon cross country boys win district championship meet / October 30, 2019
It has been a stellar year for Park View cross country. The boys team finished the regular season with a 9-1 mark and finished first in the Tri-Rivers District standings. They capped that off with a district championship in the Tri-Rivers meet held last Wednesday at Parker Park in South Hill. Park View defeated second place Southampton 25-30 to take the crown.

The boys placed five runners in the top 11 to take the team win. Junior standout Jacob Fadool took first place over the 5K (3.1 mile) course finishing in a time of 18:05. Eli Fadool placed second with a time of 18:10 followed by Salvador Gutierrez finishing in 18:17.

Dragon runners Colin Malone (20:40) and Adam Piercy (20:48) wrapped up the top five finishers for Park View. Landen Seiders (21:42) finished 13th out of 31 runners. Unfortunately, teammate Justin Zincone suffered a hip injury and was unable to complete the course. At press time it did appear that Zincone will be able to participate in the region championships in November.

The Park View girls were unable to field enough runners to qualify for a team score but four did complete the course. Angie Hernandez led the way for PV finishing in 25:55, good enough for third place overall. Marlee Surry (32:20), Taylor Pulley (32:27) and Rachel Richey (35:57) were the other finishers for Park View.

“The boys team ran well all season, and continued to improve and won the regular season,” said coach Michael Herring of the district meet outcome. “The girls ran well also and Angie Hernandez, a freshman, I continue to highlight her as she has a lot of potential.

“Marlee Surry, Rachel Richey and Taylor Pulley have all amazed me with their improvement this season. They’ve shaved as much as eight minutes off their time.

“I couldn’t be more proud of this team and all the effort they’ve put out and the balance that they’ve shown between athletics and academics,” added Herring.

District honors were bestowed upon the runners and teams after the event.

Park View won the regular season district title and won the district tournament.

Four (out of six) Park View runners were named to the All-District team. They were Salvador Adrian, Justin Zincone, Eli Fadool and Jacob Fadool.

In addition, Jacob Fadool was named 2019 Tri-Rivers District runner of the year with an average meet finish of first place.

For the ladies, Southampton finished as regular season champions with Appomattox Regional Governor’s school winning the district postseason meet.

Park View’s Angie Hernandez was named to the 2019 Tri-Rivers All-District team.

Next up for the cross country team is the regional meet on Nov. 5 in Chesapeake.
