Unioto Cross Country
Sent to admin1@svcsportszone.com
The Unioto Cross Country teams competed today at the Pickerington XC Classic at Pickerington North.  The teams did extremely well with
the varsity boys finishing: 6th Ethan Richter 17:00, 27th Brenson Zambarrano 17:49, 50th David Magda (Freshman) 18:26, 63rd Anthony
Edwards 18:43, 107th Jesse Griesheimer 19:36,131st Ethan Richter 20:08, and 194th Luke Sinclair 21:17.  The team was 7th in the Most
Competitive race barely behind Dublin Coffman and Dublin Scioto, and beating Central Ohio Perenial Powers Olentangy Orange and
Pickerington Central.  There were 360 runners in the race.

The Varsity girls finished 7th in their race as well running by far the best race by a Unioto team in the schools' cross country history.  Last
year's team was the second in the past three years to qualify to regionals (and only the second in school history)  and this year's team would
have placed 5 runners a minute or more AHEAD of the number one runner at the same invitational last year.  With a 23 second spread from
1-5 they were lead by Senior Mallory Retherford at 21:45 (29th).  She was followed closely by first year runner Kela Harkins (21:45) (30th),
Sophomore Julia Hacker (21:48) (32nd).  Julia was the top returning runner from last year and ran 1:15 faster this year.  Julia was followed by
2011 SVC Junior High Champ now Freshman Elena Knipp (22:03) (37th) and 2 time returning all SVC runner Kristen Cook (22:09) (39th).
The entire scoring team earned medalist honors with top 40 finishes.  Other varsity finishers were Andrea Alcorn-Dominguez 24:00(74th).  
Andrea was :57 faster than last year, and Molli Waller 27:07 (137th).  There were 213 runners in the race.
