As the top Southlake Carroll Dragon runners prepare for next week, the remaining team split up with a portion of the runners traveling to Corpus Christi for the annual Texas A&M-Islander Splash Invitational, where the girls took second place and the boys came away with a third-place finish in the 6A Varsity division. The rest of the boys and girls teams competed at the Coppell Invitational at Meadowmere Park in Grapevine.

Islander Splash Invitational

Leading the Lady Dragons to their second-place finish in Corpus was Grace Williamson placing ninth overall (21:29). Next was Abigail McIlvain (21:41) in 14th, Katherine McElaney (21:48) in 19th place, Laurel Hook (22:21) in 23rd, and in 28th was Caitlyn Midkiff (22:36).

The boys came away with a second-place finish and were led by Duncan Brown (17:55) placing seventh overall.  Next was Grant Anderson (18:12) in 17th, Bradley Heidebrecht (18:19) in 22nd, Ryan Odneal (18:52) in 50th and Oliver Arandia (18:53) in 53rd to round out the top five.

Colleyville Heritage Invitational

Carroll Cross Country had teams compete in the JV division of the meet in Grapevine with the girls team finishing fifth and the boys placing sixth. First to cross the line for the girls was Jenna Laverock (23:44) in 21st, next was Kathryn Reilley (24:27) in 29th, Reese Duggan (24:28) in 30th, Ava Chadd (24:37) in 34th and Morgan Potter (24:51) in 42nd. Leading the boys was Brett Walker (19:17) in 41st, Brian McCarthy (19:23) in 43rd, Michael Chambless (19:33) in 50th, Thomas Drefs (19:33) in 51st and in 52nd was Bennett Woolsey (19:36).

“We are proud of the way our program and teams competed this weekend at the Islander Splash and Coppell Invite,” said head coach Justin Leonard in a press release. “The teams were able to gain some valuable experience that will hopefully pay dividends next weekend and ultimately at the district meet. We have one meet remaining until district, so it’s time to focus on the little things and get ready to run fast when it matters the most.”

The Dragons are back on the course next Saturday with the Varsity teams traveling to the highly competitive Chile Pepper Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and the JV Dragon runners competing in Keller at the Timbercreek Invitational.
