CF, MB boys, NMB girls net state cross country berths

The North Myrtle Beach girls survived sloppy course conditions to finish eighth and the Myrtle Beach boys placed ninth at Saturday’s Class 4A Lower State Qualifier in Darlington to earn bids to next weekend’s SCHSL State Championships.

The Lady Chiefs (216 points) were led by 17th-place  eighth-grader Isabella Spickler (21:49) and 27th-place senior Havana Charles (22:40). Teammates Kaylin Regan (24:09), Wilson Jenerette (24:19) and Kayah Marquez (24:38) helped NMB claim one of the state berths awarded to the top nine teams.

The Myrtle Beach girls (259) missed out on a team state berth with an 11th-place finish, but had a pair of state qualifiers. Riley Massey (23:07) and Samantha Murillo (23:10) placed 38th and 39th, respectively, to earn state bids for the top 40 individuals.

The Myrtle Beach boys (275) edged North Myrtle Beach (294) for the ninth and final state qualifying spot. Tyler Flannelly (19:14) led the Seahawks with a 36th-place showing, followed by 52nd-place Hayden Ford (20:03),, 54th-place Jake DeSalvo (20:04) and 62nd-place Curt Caudle (20:25).

North Myrtle Beach’s Jenson Button (19:14) and Alexander D’Annunzio (19:14) came in 37th and 38th, respectively, to earn individual state bids.

The Class 4A/5A state cross country meets will be held next Saturday in Columbia.

Earlier this week, the Carolina Forest boys cross country team captured a fifth-place finish at Wednesday’s Class 5A Lower State Qualifier in North Charleston to earn a bid to next week’s SCHSL State Championships.

The Panthers (116 points) got solid finishes from 10th-place Michael Mohr (16:53), 13th-place Jacob Dulson (16:59), 21st-place Jonathan Penter (17:17), 30th-place Cullen Dore (17:39) and and 47th-place Austin Smith (18:20) to advance to next Saturday’s SCHSL state meet in Columbia.

Conway’s Monroe Thompkins (16:33) turned in the top local time to finish seventh individually and earn a trip to states.

Socastee (206), led by 33rd-place finisher Ward Wilson (17:40), placed eighth as the first team not to make the state cut.

St. James’ Jayson Brady (16:42) placed ninth to make states, but the Sharks also finished ninth (221) to miss out as a team.

In Class 5A girls, Socastee (221) finished eighth, St. James (245) ninth, and Carolina Forest (285) 10th, narrowly missing out on a team trip to next week’s state championship meet.

Two local girls qualified as individuals – No. 19 Taylor Marrotta (21:10) of St. James and No. 20 Brianna Hatfield (21:13) of Carolina Forest.
