Braves, Lady Sharks prevail; Epstein, Jenerette medalists

The Socastee boys successfully defended their region cross country championship and the Lady Braves finished a close second to St. James at the region championships on a rainy Tuesday at Market Common.

Myrtle Beach’s Ethan Epstein completed the 5K course in 16:40, easily beating a pair of Wilson runners to the finish line. But the Braves placed runners in three of the next four positions.

Nick Koonce (17:47) edging Myrtle Beach’s Jimmy Recinos for fourth place, followed by Socastee’s Chris Matlashew (17:50) and Cameron Amann (17:55)in sixth and seventh, respectively, for a team score of 44.

Wilson (54) was second, followed by Myrtle Beach (58), St. James (72), North Myrtle Beach (153) and Georgetown (155). The top four teams and top 10 individuals advance to next week’s Lower State meet.

In girls action, North Myrtle Beach’s Benjamin Jenerette successfully defended her region title in a time of 19:13, followed by runner-up and younger sister Drake Jenerette (19:32). Socastee runners took third, fourth and ninth places – Crystal Shimer (19:53), Jill Dudley (20:07) and Beka Booth (20:53) – but neither team could take the title.

That distinction went to the Lady Sharks (41), who saw their top four runners post top-10 finishes – fifth-place Christine Cunningham (20:10), sixth-place Kelsey Glover (20:13), seventh-place Samantha Cunningham (20:19) and Karleigh Jones (21:15) in 10th place.
