Young harriers begin cross-country campaign

The Franklin County cross country team, youthful and
determined, are putting their best feet forward as the season gets underway.

Last Saturday, at Dueling Summits 2021 at Elinor
Klapp-Phipps Park in Tallahassee, coach Kati-Morgan Hathcock brought eight
runners to compete at the event, hosted by the Maclay School.

All their times but one were season’s bests, since for most
of the runners it was their first meet.

In the 3,000-meter run, seventh grader Addyson Paul ran a 14:31.10
to finish 15th in the middle of middle school girls. Sixth grader Isabella
Polous ran a 16:09.30 to finish 26th, while sixth grader Baileigh Dasher ran a 20:06.70
for a 62nd place finish.

In the 5,000-meter run, junior Alondra Jimenez’s time of 42:59.40
placed her at 114th among the varsity runners.

Among the middle school boys, who competed in the 3000-meter
run, seventh grader Trenton Teat ran a 15:10.70, good for  67th in the field.

In the varsity level’s 5,000-meter run, freshman Josiah
Friddle ran a 20:47.60 to finish 36th.

Senior Jamal Robinson posted a time of 23:27.10 to finish 93rd,
while freshman Dexton Teat ran a 27:09.70 to finish 151st.

A week earlier, at the same park, four Seahawk runners took
part in the Miller Landing Madness, the traditional start of the middle and
high school fall cross-country season.

Friddle, 14, posted a season’s best time of 19:44, finishing
in fourth place, which was topped by 21-year-old Brock Granberg, followed by
two 17-year-olds, David Morrison and Landon Watts.

Among the females, Jimenez, 15, posted a time of 22:57 to
finish 34th.

In the 3,000-meter race, Paul, 12, ran a 13:52 time to
finish 16th.
