Braves, Krier, Jenerette take fifth at state x-country meet

The Socastee High boys cross country team posted its best showing in school history with a fifth-place finish in Saturday’s Class AAA state championships in Columbia.

Socastee senior Travis Lazaroff finished 15th to earn all-state honors, completing the 3.1-mile course at the Sandhills Research Center in 17 minutes, 3 seconds. He led the Braves to a team total of 217, good for fifth among Class AAA foes.

“Not bad for a team that didn’t make the Top 10 poll in the state all season long,” said Socastee cross country coach Joe Grega. “I thought we had a chance to finish that high, but was thinking more top 10 than top five.”

Led by overall winner Jack Manesiotis (15:36), Hilton Head Island (61) was first, followed by Wade Hampton (67), Fort Mill (74), Eastside (144) and Socastee.

Socastee’s Patrick Gardiner was 35th (17:29), Will Caswell was 44th (17:44), Austin Poisson was 50th (17:53) and Garrett Searcy was 77th (18:10).

St. James finished 14th behind a top-five showing by Billy Krier, who turned in a time of 16:30 to finish fifth and earn all-state honors. Fellow Sharks Corey Morrison was 12th (16:50), Cory Falco was 70th (18:08), Michael Chapman finished 137th (19:31), and Noah Krechel placed 150th for a team total of 374.

Myrtle Beach placed 24th with 650 points. The Seahawks were led by Nick Silvestri in 93rd (18:27), Joseph Jesdarines was 129th (19:22), Ethan Epstein placed 136th (19:31), Blake Etterly was 147th (19:59) and Timir Shitrit placed 152nd (20:26).
Individual only runners from the area included North Myrtle Beach’s Steven Small in 105th place (18:41).

In the Class AAA girls meet, North Myrtle Beach’s Benjamin Jenerette finished fifth with a time of 19:03, matching her career personal-best time but placing two spots lower than last season. Jenerette, who also was named to the all-state team, led the Lady Chiefs to an 18th-place finish.

The Lady Chiefs’ other contributors included sister Drake Jenerette in 76th (21:51), Alexandra Tanck in 96th (22:32), Rebekah Mishler in 126th (23:41) and Ashley Buck in 143 (25:13).

The Socastee girls finished 18th, led by Rebekka Booth in 87th (22:12), Crystal Shimer in 91st (22:24), Savanah Tolonese in 99th (22:44), Skye Pellicia in 102nd (22:56) and Jill Dudley in 107th (23:08), with the top-five Lady Braves all finishing within 1 minute of each other.

St. James was 20th, led by Samantha Cunningham placing 83rd (22:05), Kelsey Glover taking 95th (22:32), Natalie Feagin in 105th (23:04), Laura Johnson in 129th (23:51) and Shannon Johnsen in 146 (25:25).

Myrtle Beach’s Kailey Flannelley ran individually and placed 100th (22:25).
Eastside (53) defeated Hilton Head Island (98) for the girls team title.

In the Class AAAA girls meet held a short time later, Carolina Forest finished 16th. Jackie Brengel finished 31st (20:14) for the Lady Panthers, followed by Nia Payne in 78th (21:36), Lisa Pieterse in 88th (22:06), Danielle Schroder in 90th (22:14) and Ashley Cole in 105th (22:50).
