Krier, Jenerette break tape; Braves, Lady Sharks prevail

St. James’ Billy Krier and North Myrtle Beach’s Drake Jenerette captured medalist honors in Thursday’s Region 7-3A cross country championships, but neither could lead their team to victory.

Krier completed the 5,000-meter course in 16:34 to repeat as region boys champion, with teammate Corey Morrison (17:13) finishing runner-up. Jenerette inherited the title formerly held her elder sister, Benjamin, by turning in a top girls time of 20:23.

However, it was the Socastee boys (36 points) and St. James girls (56) prevailing for the team title. Samantha Cunningham (21:13) led the Lady Sharks to the line in third place. The Socastyee boys swept the rest of the top five spots with William Caswell (17:25), Austin Poisson (17:25) and Justin Knipper (17:31).

St. James’ Corey Falco (18:00) finished eighth, Socastee’s William Vaught (18:27) rounded out the top 10, St. James’ Hunter Brown (18:36) placed 12th and Socastee’s Jake Perito (18:44) finished 14th to close out the Braves’ scoring. The Sharks’ final scoring runner was Noah Krehel (19:52) in 30th for a total of 53 points.

Myrtle Beach’s Ethan Epstein (17:51) finished seventh, Mehrzad Namiranian (18:37) was 13th, Jimmy Recinos (19:01) was 19th, Nicolas Sylvestri (19:03) was 20th and Miguel Garcia (19:21) was 24th to give the Seahawks 83 points and a third-place finish. Wilson grabbed the fourth and final spot with 86 points.

North Myrtle Beach (122), which was led by Jared Woody’s 15th-place showing, missed the cut. Adam Miller (19:07) finished 21st, Austin Taylor (19:31) was 25th, Tom Roeder (19:38) placed 27th, and Jackie Ward (20:08) placed 34th to round out the scoring for the Chiefs.

The Lady Sharks followed Cunningham’s third-place finish with Kelsey Glover (22:25) in ninth, Felicity Weber (22:54) in 13th, Karleigh Jones (23:04) in 15th and Natalie Feagin (23:07) in 16th to round out their scoring. They edged Wilson (58) by only two points to earn the region crown.

Socastee (68) finished third, led by Rebekah Booth (22:11) in eighth, Crystal Shimer (22:46) in 11th, Jill Dudley (22:46) in 12th, Savannah Tolonese (23:12) in 18th and Skye Pellicia (23:19) in 19th.

Myrtle Beach (80) finished fourth despite Madison Tilford (21:46) and Mary Beth Hervig (21:50) finishing sixth and seventh. Kailey Flannelly (23:09) was 17th, Shakirya Peeples (23:37) was 21st and Mary Alice Jordan (25:34) placed 29th.

Despite having the girls race winner, North Myrtle Beach (111) settled for fifth place. Courtni Hyatt (23:45) was 22nd, Noel Mishler (23:54) was 24th, Medinah Williams (25:48) finished 31st, and Nessia Williams (25:57) was 33rd to round out the scoring for the Lady Chiefs.

The top four teams in each division will advance to the Class 3A state championships next weekend. Jenerette also will advance as an individual.
