Great results from top to bottom. And for many freshmen, their first 5K race and their first away meet. Congratulations! If your time was not too sensational, be aware that Josh Anderson ran his 2009 race in Hendersonville in 25:32. Just 16:37 Saturday.
Darby -- 2nd or 3rd fastest time ever on the Jackson Park course, despite the conditions. 18:15, 30 seconds ahead of TC Roberson's Brooke Gordon.
There is another meet at Alexander Central coming up Wednesday after school. Relays! (Yes, it really is scheduled for Wednesday, according to both high schools' and NC Runners' pages.)
