Carly Wilkes set a new course record when the Glenvar girls ran in the Alleghany Cross Country Meet at the Jackson River Sports Complex last Saturday.
Wilkes finished first overall in a time of 17:49.72. That not only broke her previous best of 18:02 but beat the course record by a whopping 50 seconds.
Glenvar had just five girls and four boys at the meet due to spring break. Following Wilkes for the Highlanders were Isabelle Pope at 25:23, Molly McCroskey at 26:16, Joanna Killeen at 26:41 and Emma Pope at 27:44.
For the boys Daniel Zearfoss took second overall in the “A Race” with a time of 17:09. Also competing for Glenvar were Davis Norman at 20:07, Connor Maguire at 25:09 and Tucker Henderson at 27:08.
The Highlanders were scheduled to run at Giles on Wednesday of this week with mostly individuals competing. The next competitive meet will be April 7, back at Alleghany.
