Gerhart leads Spring Hill boys to Chickasaw XC championship

SM-Tn Sports

Forrest’s Jaedyn Stalnecker and Spring Hill’s Michael Gerhart claimed the individual titles at the South Central Middle Tennessee cross country meet Tuesday at Columbia’s Chickasaw Trace Park.

Stalnecker won the girls 5K competition, running a 21-minute, 13.94-second time to finish just ahead of Agathos Classical’s Lillian Quinn (22:28.94) and lead the Lady Rockets to the team championship.

Alivia Riggs (22:53.15) and Claire Woods (23:06.94) placed third and fourth for Summertown, as the Lady Eagles placed second. Zion Christian’s Hayley Keys (23:59.97) finished fifth, with her team placing third.

On the boys side, Gerhart ran a 16:58.88, with Zion’s William Craig (17:28.84) finishing second. Spring Hill freshman Tyson Peters ran an 18:01.24 for third place, followed by Columbia Central’s Trace Schoeberl (18:24.56) and Forrest’s C.J. Sanchez (18:28.84).

Spring Hill won the team competition, with Forrest finishing second.

County championship times live up to low expectations

By Maurice Patton

Brady Henson called it: Cool weather and hot times.

As the meet director predicted, both were in existence for Tuesday afternoon’s Maury County Championships cross country event at Ring Farm. Overcast skies and mid-60s temperatures combined with a firm course to result in some personal-best performances for area runners.

None were faster, or better, than Columbia Academy junior Connor Henson – the son of the Bulldogs’ coach and meet director, who put up a scorching 15-minute, 54-second effort over the 5K course to set a PR and a meet record.

“I just wanted to give everybody a good, fast race to watch,” said Henson, the three-time county champion. “With everything that’s going on, you never know when it’s going to be your last race. I wasn’t going to go into quarantine knowing I didn’t run my best in my last race.”

Henson, a top-10 finisher in consecutive state championship meets, was set on improving his 2019 outing, when he ran a 16:50 to win by more than a minute.

“Sub-16 was the goal,” he said. “I know I can run 15:30-something. If I’d been in a race with guys up there with me, it may have been possible (Tuesday). But there’s still plenty of racing left. This is a step in the right direction, but I’ve got so much potential to run faster.”

A fast takeoff had Henson clear of the pack before the first turn, and he never looked back. Spring Hill senior Michael Gerhart finished second with a 16:38 – also a PR, as was senior William Craig’s 17:32 for third place for Zion Christian.

Columbia Central’s Trace Schoeberl (17:58), winner of last week’s all-comers meet at Ring Farm, and Lions teammate Sunny Quinn (18:20) completed the top five.

“There were ideal conditions for running,” the elder Henson said. “I’m really happy with all the results. I’m happy for the kids from some other schools that got PRs.

“Nobody’s ever broken 16 here. For Connor to go out and run by himself and break 16 – that’s significant.”

CA’s Drew Butt (18:36) and C.J. Durrough (18:40) turned in top-eight finishes as well, helping the Bulldogs to the team title. Columbia Academy scored 39 points, with Spring Hill totaling 53 behind Gerhart and freshman Tyson Peters (18:25, sixth place).

“For him to get in the 16:30s, that’s what we wanted,” Spring Hill coach Jeremy Paisley said of Gerhart. “Hopefully he can get down to the 16:20s over the next couple of weeks. That may give him a shot (at a state berth).”

Columbia Central’s Gonzalo Chamorro (18:47) and Mt. Pleasant’s Jackson Gary (18:52) rounded out the boys top 10.

In the earlier high school girls race, CA junior Annabelle Cothran took the same approach as the younger Henson – clearing the pack early and running solo to a 21:36 finish. Teammate Jaelyn Hickerson placed second with a 23:08.

“It wasn’t what I was expecting,” Cothran said. “(Coach Henson) said to go out hard and leave ‘em as soon as possible. I looked around and nobody was pushing me. I was shocked. I had nobody around me by the first half-mile.”

Cothran won last year’s meet with a 21:07.

“My time’s not where I wanted it to be, but nobody was pushing me, so there was no sense in expending any extra energy,” she said. “We’ve got another race in a couple of weeks, so there was a little self-preservation there.”

Zion Christian, with three top-10 finishers – junior Hayley Keys (24:01, fourth place), freshman Elizabeth Wood (25:35, seventh place) and junior Aria Davis (26:11, 10th place) – won the team competition, finishing with 56 points to edge Columbia Academy by one.

“I honestly thought we’d be in second place, but I’m thrilled with the opportunity,” Zion coach Christion Brewer said. “They worked hard. We’ve only got five total runners, two freshmen, a sophomore and two juniors.”

Agathos Classical, also with a trio of top-10 runners, was third with 65 points. Freshman Lillian Quinn finished third overall with a 23:12, with sister Katherine (24:31) placing sixth and Lia Grippo (26:04) ninth.

Santa Fe’s Marilyn Trout (24:14) placed fifth and Hampshire’s Hailey Potts (26:02) eighth to round out the top 10.

Columbia Academy’s Pressley Miller (13:24) won the middle school girls individual competition, with Battle Creek taking team honors. Battle Creek’s Kyle Nielsen (12:35) won the boys race and led his team to the title.

Good times for Summertown, Columbia Central runners

By Maurice Patton

Multi-sport athletes ruled the day at the Southern Middle Tennessee Ring Farm all-comers cross country meet Tuesday.

Columbia Central’s Trace Schoeberl covered the 5K course in 18 minutes, 32.44 seconds to win the boys high school competition – finishing 40 seconds ahead of Lions teammate Gonzalo Chamorro, who placed third.

On the girls side, Summertown’s Alivia Riggs and Claire Woods each turned in top-10 finishes.

For all four, cross country is a secondary endeavor.

“I thought they did well, with the limited practice we’ve had,” Summertown coach Greg Burleson said regarding Riggs and Woods. Riggs, a freshman, is a member of the Lady Eagles basketball team, while Woods is a senior pitcher on the softball team.

“They’re all doing something else. They come when they can.”

Riggs ran a 23:36.41, placing second behind Forrest sophomore Jaedyn Stalnecker (21:45.50), with Woods running a 24:07.91 for eighth place.

It was just the second meet of the season for Summertown’s boys and girls teams, following an event a week ago at Chapel Hill’s Henry Horton State Park.

That was one more meet than Central’s squads had under their belt – and the jitters may have claimed the Lions’ top runner.

Sunny Quinn, a junior, got off course at one of the last turns before the final stretch. After learning of his miscue, he took a did-not-finish.

“Sunny should have broken 18 (minutes),” Central coach Sarah Robert said. “He went the wrong way and then quit.”

Schoeberl kept pace with Quinn for the most part, but took his own detour before recalculating his path.

“I took the middle school route and lost about 10 seconds,” said Schoeberl, who is an avid cross country biker and has logged 12,000 miles this year.

“This was my first race. My legs are killing me. But I need to set a better pace.”

Robert is excited about the possibilities with Quinn, Schoeberl and Chamorro – a soccer player who ran a 19:13.57 to finish 16 seconds behind Marshall County’s Zack Sheppard.

“Gonzalo’s only run a couple of weeks with us,” she said. “He’s fun to watch.

“This is huge for Trace. He and Sunny were side by side, encouraging each other. I think the cross training makes him a better runner.”

Agathos Classical’s Lillian Quinn (23:56.81) and Katherine Quinn (24:25.03) finished fifth and ninth among the girls competitors, respectively.

Full results from the meet, which also included Culleoka, Hampshire and Santa Fe along with various other Midstate teams, are available here.

The event is a bit of a preliminary for the Maury County Championships, which will take place Sept. 22 at Ring Farm.

Lady Eagles fall in shootout: Despite a Rivers Abshere hat trick, Zion Christian lost Tuesday to visiting Giles County by a 7-5 margin. Sophomore Ava Corbin added a pair of goals for the hosts in the loss.
