Krier, Jenerette win again; Braves, Sharks top teams

St. James’ Billy Krier and North Myrtle Beach’s Benjamin Jenerette repeated as Region VIII-AAA champions, and the Socastee boys and St. James girls captured the team region titles on Wednesday at Market Common.

Krier and Jenerette, who were region medalists last year and also repeated in last Saturday’s Horry County Championships, navigated the wet course and windy conditions to break the tape in their respective races.

The conditions prevented both from posting record times, with Krier crossing the finish line in 16 minutes, 44 seconds, and Jenerette completing the 3.1-mile course in 19:59, almost a full minute off her personal best.

But neither could lead their team to a region title as the Socastee boys claimed the hardware with a team total of 28 and the St. James girls brought home the trophy with a total of 47.

The St. James boys actually captured the top two spots, with Krier’s teammate Corey Morrison (17:18) finishing second. But Socastee’s Patrick Gardiner (17:31) took third and teammate TJ Lazaroff (17:39) was fourth to gain some ground.

Following fifth-place runner Brandon Cribb (17:48) of Georgetown, Socastee’s Austin Poisson (18:27), Garret Searcy (18:33) and Will Caswell (18:36) rounded out the top eight finishers to pave the Braves’ way to victory.

St. James (78) finished second in the boys division, followed by Wilson (81), Georgetown (86), Myrtle Beach (109) and North Myrtle Beach (134).

The North Myrtle Beach girls also claimed the top two spots, with younger sister Drake Jenerette (21:37) placing second. Georgetown’s Mary Cooper Jordan (21:40), Myrtle Beach’s Mary Beth Hervig (21:59) and Socastee’s Savanah Tolonese (22:02) rounded out the top five girls.

St. James’ best finisher, Samantha Cunningham (22:10), was sixth and teammate Kelsey Glover (22:31) took eighth to lead the Lady Sharks. North Myrtle Beach’s Alexandra Tanck (22:41) and Myrtle Beach’s Kailey Flannelly (23:05) rounded out the top 10.

But St. James came through with Ashlyn McAliffe (23:33) in 14th, Natalie Feagin (23:42) in 17th and Laura Johnson (23:51) in 20th to take the team title. Socastee (50) and North Myrtle Beach (54) were second and third, followed by Georgetown (67).

The top teams and finishers now prepare for the Lower State meet for the right to advance to the state championships.
