Carolina Forest sweeps county cross country meet

The Carolina Forest boys and girls cross country teams ran away with the Horry County Championships on Saturday at Socastee.

The Panthers had three runners place in the top seven and the Lady Panthers had three finish in the top four to make it a clean sweep for Carolina Forest at the annual intra-county meet.

St. James turned in the top two finishers in the boys event, with Billy Krier repeating for medalist honors with a top time of 16 minutes, 27 seconds. Teammate Corey Morrison was 25 seconds behind as the runner-up. But the next two spots belonged to Carolina Forest, with Dustin Conklin (17:01) and Jesse Partrick (17:24) taking third and fourth place.

“The kids ran well today,” said Carolina Forest boys coach Eric Sauthoff. “We lost four of our top seven runners from last year so we’ve had some younger kids step it up. Our best runner (Conklin) was our No. 8 last year, so he’s really picked it up this season.”

After Socastee’s Patrick Gardiner (17:30) and TJ Lazaroff (17:43) claimed fifth and sixth, Carolina Forest’s Charles Daniele (18:12) took seventh.  Teammates Robert Reardon (18:25) was 11th and Darren Hogan (18:39) was 14th to give the Panthers a winning score of 39, 19 points better than second-place Socastee (58). St. James (60) finished third, Myrtle Beach (110) was fifth, North Myrtle Beach (152) placed sixth and Conway (200) was seventh.

Carolina Forest also dominated the girls event but no one could come close to catching North Myrtle Beach’s Benjamin Jenerette (19:13), who won by 30 seconds over her closest challenger to successfully defend her title. But Lady Panthers Jackie Brengel (19:43), Nia Payne (21:01) and Lisa Pieterse (21:08) rounded out the top four finishers.

North Myrtle Beach’s Drake Jenerette (21:32), the younger sisters of Benjamin, was fifth, followed by St. James’ Samantha Cunningham (21:42). But Carolina Forest’s Danielle Schroder (22:00) claimed seventh and Ashley Cole (23:39) was 23rd to help the Lady Panthers match the boys score of 39.

North Myrtle Beach (77) was the runner-up, thanks in part to an eighth-place showing by Alexandria Tanck (22:03), St. James (90) was third and Socastee (97) finished fourth. Myrtle Beach (109) was sixth and Conway (160) placed seventh.

The Region VIII meet will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Market Common.
