It's become a familiar refrain - "running without three of their top five from last year's state championship team", but despite the absence of those who aren't racing, those who are continue to push through and find success. Jamie Blaylock (8th) finished first for Ravenwood for the fifth consecutive meet as she and Alex Rosen (9th) finished in the top 10. Olivia Derr (12th), Msgana Araya (30th), and Carson Everman (31) scored as the Lady Raptors defeated runners up Brentwood by 37 points. Elise Strevell and Taylor Hill finished 6th and 7th for Ravenwood.
The JV girls were decimated as 14 total runners did not compete. They still finished 4th, led by Ansley Baine, Ellie Claybrook, Katie Schmidt, Kareena Patel, and Erin Gwydir. Riley Jorgenson and Kate Florey were 6th and 7th for Ravenwood.
Both teams will race again on October 26 at the Region 6 Large School championship in Nashville as the varsity girls look to punch their ticket to state for the 15th straight season.
