On Saturday, Carroll Cross Country hosted the 13th annual Southlake Invitational beneath blue skies at Bob Jones Park. The event has become one of Texas’ premiere races, bringing teams from around the state as well as California, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Some of Carroll’s top boys and girls had a scheduled week off and did not compete. Varsity girls took 10th place; varsity boys took 12th.

“We would like to thank all of our volunteers and parents for helping us put on the Southlake Carroll XC Invite,” said Carroll Cross Country head coach Justin Leonard via press release. “We are proud of the way our kids competed in the races. We were able to give our younger runners an opportunity to run in the varsity races so they could gain some much-needed experience. We are looking forward to the rest of the season.” 

The varsity girls were led by Junior Shreya Veeravelli coming in 46th overall (19:29), next was Sophomore Katherine McElaney in 55th (19:40), then Juniors Madalyn Wardin in 58th (19:47), Audrey Kwentus in 66th (19:53) and rounding out the top 5 was Junior Sarah Creech in 71st (19:56). There were a total of 253 varsity girls running.

The varsity boys team took 12th, led by Junior Nick Arriaza in 64th with a time of 16.33, followed by Senior Chris Duffy, 74th (16:41), Junior Duncan Brown, 84th (16:46), Sophmore Tim McElaney, 88th (16:48), and Junior Bradley Heidebrecht taking 102nd place (16:58) to complete the top five Carroll runners. There were 295 varsity boys competing.

The JV girls team was led by Caitlyn Midkiff finishing in seventh place overall with a time of 20:30. Leading for the JV boys was Brett Gilley finishing 29th overall (17:44). There were 379 girls competing and 516 boys in the JV races.
