Moulton girls, Skowronski advance to State

Chloe Spain and Ailey Mitchell cruised into 1st and 2nd and pulled the rest of the Lady Rams into 3rd place at the Shelbyville Sectional on Saturday, advancing to state. Leading Ram runner, Ryan Skowronski, finished 3rd and also advanced to state.

As the girls came out of the woods after the start, Spain and Mitchell were in the lead with Mt. Zion runners running with them. When they came out of the woods and headed for the finish line it was Spain, then Mitchell and no one with them. Mt. Zion’s top runner appeared just as Spain was entering the chute.

Spain crossed under 13:00 (12:58) and Mitchell two seconds later (13:00). Mt. Zion’s Jasmyn Brooksher was six seconds back (13:06), followed by her teammate Genna Warnick (13:13). Alexis Henrikson of Williamsville crossed in 5th to lead her team (13:15).

Twenty something runners crossed, including two more Mt. Zion runners and a Williamsville runner. Williamsville’s third runner crossed in 21st (team 18th).

Shelby’s third runner, Lauren Bowers crossed in 25th (team 21st) in 13:52, followed by three more Mt. Zion runners to clinch the team win.

The fourth Ram scorer, Elizabeth Bowyer, then crossed in 35th (team 29th) in 14:19, followed by Jordyn Bernson, who stepped up to finish in 36th (team 31st) in 14:21. The five Ram scorers finished before the fifth Williamsville scorer. She scored immediately after Bernson.

When tallying up the scores, Mt. Zion had #3, #4, #10, #13, and #24 for just 54 points. The toss-up was for 2nd place. Shelby had #1, #2, #21, #29, and #31 for a total of 84 points. Williamsville had #5, #7, #15, #18, and #32. Williamsville’s top four runners packed closer together and their total score was 77 points, seven points better than Shelby to claim 2nd place. Shelby still qualified as the 3rd place team, 26 points ahead of the 4th place team.

In the boys race, Shelby’s Ryan Skowronski had stiff individual competition from Josh Cable of Rochester, Jason Landon of Carlinville, and Jared Owens of Williamsville.
