The Vidalia High School Indians cross country team brought home four medalists and seven personal best performances to win the Braves Invitational, hosted by Baldwin County High School on Saturday.
Luke Palmer placed 4th-18:27, Jude Owen placed 10th-19:08, Chamlee Evans placed 12th-19:28, Seth Mac-Gregor-19:39, and Hunter Loosberg rounded out the Indian’s top 5 scorers with a time of 19:52. Freshmen Jude Owen and Chamlee Evans both bested their personal best times by over 30 seconds.
The Lady Indians were unable to field an entire team but brought home three medalists. Sarah Owen won the event with a time of 21:38, Kaitlyn Allen placed 2nd-21:42, and Georgia Meredith placed 5th-22:28.
Allen busted through her old personal best by 40 seconds as she ran down a competitor at the race’s finish to place 2nd.
Following the big day in Milledgeville, Vidalia Head Coach Mandy Godbee said, “These young athletes continue to shine as they bust through their goals each week. We have never had a season in which the athletes run so many personal best times each week. They are working hard and they are preparing themselves for a successful post season, and for this we are so proud!”
The Indians continue their season Thursday as they hit the road to compete at Bleckley County.
