Multiple Teams · Central Catholic Invite 2016

Central Catholic hosted 451 middle school runners representing cross country teams from eighteen area schools at the 2016 Central Catholic Invite last Thursday.  All of our Knights posted their best times of the season and our teams scored very well against a very competitive field.

In the girls race, 7th grade Knight Audrey Cleveland paced the team with an 11th place finish in 12:52.  This is Cleveland’s first finish in under 13 minutes. Teammates Maria Vawter finished in 23rd place at 13:21, Clare Rausch in 24th place at 13:22, Mia Vinarcik in 84th place at 15:22 and Claire Potter in 127th place at 17:23. The girls team finished in 8th place with a score of 210 points, losing the 7th place spot in a tie-breaker with Klondike.

In the boys race 8th grader Nick Burton was the first Knight to finish with a time of 11:12, which was good for 6th place overall.  Seaton Garrett (22nd place), Mark Cramer (24th place) and Calvin Pickerill (26th place) paced each other around the course and finished nearly together in just over 12:00.  Sixth grader Robbie Burton (55th place) was our fifth finisher at 12:39. Dylan Riley (110th place, 13:40) and Logan Torres (137th place 14:06) rounded out the top seven.  The boys team made it onto the podium with a 2nd place finish out of 16 teams that competed in the boys race.
