Victories at the Hornet Nest for the Bainbridge boys and Thomas County Central girls

HornetWhatever the GHSA calendar may say, high school cross country in Southwest Georgia doesn't start until the annual Pelham Hornet Cross Country Invitational. This year the region's harriers raced in that opener on Saturday morning, 22 August 2015. The Bainbridge High Bearcats took the boy's title for the third year in a row scoring a nearly-unbeatable 30 points, while Bearcat sophomore Poncherella Leonard won individual honors with a 17:34. On the girls' side Thomas County Central totaled 75 points to reign as the top team. Colquitt County sophomore Elizabeth Funderburk was the winning individual in the girls' 5K, running 21:04.


The high school competition at the Invitational opened with the girls' 5K. The race was all Elizabeth Funderburk's; the Colquitt County Packer sophomore's 21:04 put her more than 150 meters ahead of the next athlete. However, Funderburk was the Packer's only runner in the top 20, which didn't bode well for the Colquitt County's chances in the team standings. Meanwhile, the Thomas County Central Yellowjackets not only had sophomore Cara Eaton finish second in 21:48, but also had sophomore Jinglei Horchler crack the top ten with a 24:20 ninth-place finish. The Yellowjackets put four runners in the top fifteen, then sealed victory and a 75-point total with a 41st-place 29:14 showing from junior Logan Covington. Close behind the Yellowjackets, Tift County edged Lee County for second, 81 to 82. Tift County was led by sophomore Ashlee Golden (7th, 23:56), and Lee County by junior Ansley Cain (11th, 24:32).

  10. 24:29.69 ~ Monica Webb (Pelham) 11

The bad news for everyone in the boys' 5K was that an error by the timing company running the finish line made it impossible to compile complete results for the race. The bad news for everyone but Bainbridge was that you didn't need complete results to tell that the Bearcats had won again. Even worse news for everyone but Bainbridge was that the Bearcats took the top two places in the race with a sophomore and a freshman--Poncharella Leonard (1st, 17:34) and Caleb Harris (2nd, 18:07)--two athletes that runners in the area could be chasing for the next three years. That one-two finish started Bainbridge toward a winning total of 30 points. Behind the third-place 18:43 finish of senior Sam Gelabert, Thomas County Central placed second with 40 points.

Valdosta eighth-grader won the boys' two mile with a 12:29, just ahead of the 12:39 posted by runner-up Bryce Stephens, a Tift seventh-grader. However, it was the Lee County boys who won the team title. Lee County put sixth-grader Josh Macklin (4th, 12:55), eighth-grader Ben Phillips (5th, 13:03), and eighth-grader Walker Pinson (8th, 13:24) in the top ten. Four more runners Lee County runners made the top twenty, including scorers Will Tomlinson (11th, 13:58) and Robbie Collins (15th, 14:17), both in the seventh grade. It was enough to give Lee County a winning total of 43 points. Valdosta was a distance second with 97 points. Bainbridge squeaked by Thomas County Central for third, 106 to 107, Bainbridge led by eighth-grader Stokes Moore (3rd, 12:49) and Central by eighth-grader Brandon Hopper (14th, 14:10).


Whether their season ends with the Georgia State Middle School Cross Country Championships in Cochran on 17 October 2015 or the GHSA State Cross Country Championships in Carrollton on 7 November 2015, all of these athletes have a lot of racing ahead of them this fall.
