Region cross country meets are scheduled this week with Salem participating in the Region 4D meet on Tuesday and Glenvar hosting the Region 2C meet on Wednesday.
Salem’s girls were fourth and the boys were eighth in the Region 4D meet at the Panorama Farms course in Earlysville Tuesday afternoon. The course is near Charlottesville and is the same one used by the University of Virginia.
The top three teams made the state tournament, and it was the same three schools in both the girls’ and boys’ races. Jefferson Forest is the girls’ region champ while Western Albemarle won the boys title. Blacksburg qualified for the state in both races along with the Jefferson Forest boys and Western Albemarle girls.
Salem had three individuals qualify for the state Class 4 meet, which will be held at the Great Meadow course near Warrenton on Saturday, November 13. Katelyn Crumpacker, Elizabeth Bocock and Brooke Bowers all qualified by finishing in the top five not on one of the qualifying teams. Abby Pitts missed it by one spot and also scoring for Salem was Claire Rawlins.
None of the Salem boys made the state, as Tommy Henzey finished two spots away from an individual berth. Also scoring for the Spartans ere Walker Peterson, Carson Tucker, Ty Hicklin and Lance Toapanta.
The Region 2C meet was scheduled for Green Hill Park on Wednesday, but results were too late for publication. The top three teams and top five individuals not on those teams will advance to the state Class 2 meet at Green Hill Park on November 13th. Green Hill will host the Class 1, 2 and 3 meets on that day.
