Shires host cross country meet

HOULTON, Maine — A cold, drizzly day greeted athletes from throughout Aroostook County as cross country runners competed at Houlton Middle-High School.

Madison McCarthy of the Maine School of Science and Mathematics was the top female runner, completing the course in 21 minutes, 36 seconds. Jeremy Stone of Houlton/GHCA was the top boys runner, finishing in 18:19.

“It was a wet and wild meet (Tuesday) as we hosted the Class C Aroostook League schools for meet No. 5 of the fall schedule,” Houlton coach Chris Rines said. “I actually think it was a lot of fun racing in the rain and I think most would agree they’d take it over blistering heat any day.  I believe it really helped a few of our kids get out of their comfort zones too because we saw some great performances that just three days ago in Caribou weren’t quite there yet.”

In the girls race, Houlton’s Teagan Ewings led most of the race before Madison McCarthy and Dolcie Tanquay of the Maine School of Science and Mathematics took the lead.

The girls team scores were: 1, MSSM 28, 2, Houlton/GHCA, 35; 3, Fort Kent, 70; and Washburn, no team score.

The individual girls results were: 1, McCarthy, MSSM, 21:36; 2, Tanguay, MSSM, 21:47; 3, Ewings, Houlton/GHCA, 22:05; 4, Emmalyne Drake, Houlton/GHCA, 22:25;  5, Makenna Cooley, Houlton/GHCA, 23:15; 6, Evyn Lally, MSSM, 23:50; 7, Janelle Ross, Houlton/GHCA, 23:54; 8, Ellie Smith, FK, 24:03; 9, Violet Mahar-Little, MSSM, 24:10; 10, Madison Miller, Wash, 24:16;  11, Milicia Samardzic, MSSM, 24:22; 12, Jasmine Deal, MSSM, 24:26; 13, Hannah Nelson, MSSM, 24:32; 14, Emma Landry, FK, 24:45; 15, Mya Eno, FK, 25:12; 16, Annabelle Landry, FK, 25:14; 17, Aliya Sabattis-Webber, Houlton/GHCA, 28:05; 18, Shelby Carson, MSSM, 28:50; 19, Kylie Farley, Wash, 30:31; 20, Brice Carson, MSSM, 30:54; 21, Raegyn Chave, Wash, 33:02; 22, Emerson Turner, Wash, 33:45; and 23, Kennedy Ashby, FK, 35:06.

“The boys continue to improve and are really coming around,” Rines said. “A huge congrats to Jeremy Stone as he took his first career individual win. He was quite excited to say the least.”
