Carolina Forest wins tri-meet against Socastee, St. James

The Carolina Forest boys and girls cross country team swept a tri-meet over Socastee and St. James on Tuesday in a pair of races that came down to the wire.

Carolina Forest’s Lisa Pieterse rounded the 3.1-mile course in 19:34.17 to earn medalist honors among the girls by more than a minute ahead of runner-up Samantha Cunningham (21:03.13) of St. James and third-place finisher Beka Booth (21:28.34) of Socastee.

In the boys competition, St. James’ Billy Krier made the circuit in 16:14.25 for the top time among the boys by 22 seconds ahead of Carolina Forest’s Dustin Conklin (16:38.07), but the team scores were much closer than the individual races.

The Lady Panthers tallied 34 points to edge Socastee (42) and St. James (44), while the Carolina Forest boys scored 38 points to slip past the Braves (40) and Sharks (46), whose fast home track combined with cool temperatures and cloudy skies resulted in several runners posting personal-best times.

Following Conklin’s to the stripe was teammate Jesse Patrick (17:04.53), leading the Carolina Forest boys team to two of the top three spots and three of the top 10 positions thanks to Robert Reardon’s eight-place showing (18:02.47).

Will Caswell (17:12.60) was Socastee’s top finisher in fourth, with St. James’ Corey Morrison (17:28.85) rounding out the top five. Socastee’s Austin Poisson (17:43.23) was sixth, Will Vaught (18:04.50) was ninth and Nicholas Koonce (18:29.10) was 10th to help the Braves beat out St. James, who saw Corey Falco (17:51.42) finish seventh.

The Carolina Forest girls saw Danielle Schroeder (21:31.90) finish fourth, and Tracey Scalzoff (22:25.36) place sixth with personal-best times. Socastee took the next three spots with Crystal Shimer (22:41.44), Savannah Tolonese (22:48.25) and Skye Pelliccia (23:20.46) taking seventh through ninth and St. James’ Felicity Webber (23:40.64) rounding out the top 10.
