Abby Schrobilgen and Connor Phillips make it all about Chiles at the Red Hills Invitational

The first Red Hill Invitational Cross-Country Meet was in October. The second was in September--specifically, on 15 September 2018. The course also changed the second year. But the meeting was still held in Tallahassee, Florida's Phipps Park, and host team Chiles High still played rude hosts, winning everything in sight. Chiles senior Abby Schrobilgen won the girls' 5K in 19:24, leading the Timberwolves to the team title. In the boys' 5K it was Timberwolf senior Connor Phillips grabbing the win with a 16:59, while the Chiles team placed first with a mathematically unbeatable 21 points.

The Saturday morning of racing opened with the high school girls' 5K. In racing at Phipps Park, Schrobilgen was returning to the scene of her first win of the season, a first-place finish at the Cougar Cross Country Challenge back on 25 August 2018. Schrobilgen took the lead almost immediately, followed by Patasha Bryan, a South Walton sophomore. Before the race was halfway over, though, Schrobilgen had broken contact, and all that was in question was her margin of victory. That margin was close to 250 meters when she crossed the finish line in a winning 19:24. Leon sophomore Avery Calabro overtook Bryan during the second half of the race to claim second place, running 20:24. Bryan took third in 20:54.

After that it was a whole lot of Chiles, as the Timberwolves took the next four spots--junior Caitlin Wilkey was fourth in 20:55, senior Olivia Miller placed fifth in 20:59, senior Emily Culley took sixth in 21:06, and junior Emily Molen was seventh in 21:07. After that, the Chiles girls had 23 points and first place. Behind Calabro's runner-up performance, Leon scored 51 points and took second. Bryan's South Walton squad was third with 71 points, and Lincoln placed fourth with 90 points.

South Walton hadn't raced in Phipps Park since 2009, so it was a good bet that their junior, Jacob D'Aleo, was seeing Phipps for the first time. Even so, D'Aleo set the early pace in the boys' 5K, and was still leading the field by four seconds at the halfway point of the race. Then the hometown boys took over. Chiles senior Connor Phillips, Chile junior Hawthorne Hay, and Leon junior Joseph Ashebo all passed D'Aleo, then began their own debate as to who would be the 2018 Red Hills champion. It would be Phillips. The Chiles senior owned the second half of the race, going on to cross the finish line in a winning 16:59, nearly 100 meters ahead of the next runner. Hay edged Ashebo for second place, 17:19 to 17:23. Chiles senior Clay Milford overtook D'Aleo on the homestretch to take fourth, 17:30 to 17:31.

Chiles had two more scorers in the top ten, with senior Samuel Mountin sixth in 17:49 and sophomore Peter Failma eighth in 18:01, giving the Timberwolves 21 points and their second straight Red Hills boys' team title. Led By Ashebo, Leon took second with 53 points. Behind D'Aleo's fifth-place finish, South Walton was a close third with 60 points.

Maya Tang and Wyatt Townsend excel at Everhart

Behind Gretchen Everhart School, Appleyard Drive is on a slope. Runners go up this slope during the three-kilometer races at the Everhart Invitational Middle School Cross-Country Meet. At the 32nd Invitational, on Thursday morning, 13 Septemeber 2018, a Deerlake Middle School coach took up a station on this hill.


"You own this hill!" he called to his athletes. "This is just the Deerlake hill! We run this every day!"

Maya Tang

He may have been right. Deerlake's Maya Tang won the girls' race, and Wyatt Townsend of Deerlake was first in the boys' race. Swift Creek may have edged Deerlake for the girls' team title, but the Deerlake boys were the top team in their race.


The Everhart Invitational was the third event of the six-meet season for the middle school cross-country teams of Leon County Schools. Maya Tang had won the girls' race at the opening meet at Apalachee Regional Park, while Paige Churchill had taken the girls' title in the second meet at Fort Braden. The Everhart Invitational wasn't just the third match-up for the two eighth-graders; it was also a rematch of the 2017 Everhart race. Churchill and Tang had battled step for step most of the way that year before Churchill broke away late in the race to take first. The 2018 girls' 3K started out much the same, with Tang and Churchill together out in front of the rest of the field. As the Deerlake coach had noted, Tang was ready for any hills.

"On Tuesdays we do hill repeats," said Tang. "Ten of them on this really big hill on our field."


"I was expecting Paige to be up there the whole time," continued Tang. "I was hoping to get her at the end."

Instead, Tang opened a gap on Churchill about midway through the race. That margin widened on the way up the hill on Appleyard, and grew even more on the way down. At the finish line on the grounds of Everhart School, Tang crossed first in 12:16. Churchill was second in 12:40. Stella Lewis, a Swift Creek eighth-grader, took third in 12:56. Swift Creek had a third scorer in the top ten, seventh-grader Ava Jones (6th, 13:22). Seventh-grader Elizabeth Kessler (12th, 14:03) and sixth-grader Aza Hampton (20th, 14:43) finished the scoring for the Wolves, giving their squad 41 points and the team title. Deerlake was a close second with 44 points, and Montford third with 46.

Deerlake eighth-grader Wyatt Townsend grabbed the lead early in the boys' race. For the first half of the race, though, he was closely followed by Connor Edwards, a Swift Creek eighth-grader. When Edwards fell back, Fairview seventh-grader Patrick Koon took over the pursuit. Townsend and Koon had dueled for the runner-up spot in the 2017 Everhart Invitational.

"I was concerned about him," said Townsend. "I was scared the whole way, until the last turn. I looked back, saw him, and thought, 'I got this.'"


He did. Townsend finished first in 10:46, with Koon following in 11:00. Edwards placed third in 11:17.

In addition to Townsend, Deerlake had three more runners in the top ten--seventh grader Davis McNeely (5th, 11:36), eighth graders Carter Rothell (7th, 11:53) and Alastair Deng (8th, 11:57), and seventh-grader Brooks Bowden (12:01). Those five runners totalled 30 points for Deerlake, giving the Bucks first place in the team standings. Swift Creek was second with 43 points and Fairview third with 71.

There have been 32 runnings of the Everhart Invitational, and the event has certainly changed over the years. One big change in 2018 was the distance. For more than two decades, the athletes competed over two miles. This year the races were three kilometers, about 240 yards shorter than two miles. For the most part, the runners shrugged off the change.


"It honestly feels the same," said Townsend. "I doesn't make a difference to me."


The distance will be three kilometers again a week later at the next meet on the schedule, the Mustang Invitational at Montford Middle School on Thursday, 20 September 2018.


"I'm a bit worried," said Townsend. "Last year I didn't run very well there. But I'm looking forward to it like any race."


"It's mostly in the woods," said Maya Tang. "I like that because there's lots of shade."


Shade is good, because although it may be September, it's still summer.

Junious Brown and Ella Porcher lead a Maclay sweep of the Panther Invitational

PanthersThe event was John Paul II Catholic High School's third annual Panther Invitational Cross-Country Meet. The venue was John Paul II Catholic's home course, on the school's Tallahassee, Florida campus. But the competition that Saturday morning, 8 September 2018, belonged entirely to the Maclay School Marauders. Maclay eighth-grader Ella Porcher won the high school girls' 5K, running a meet record 21:49 and leading her squad to first place in the team standings. The Marauders followed that up by taking the team title in the boys' 5K, led by a 17:30 meet record performance by junior Junious Brown.


Ella Porcher's 21:49 was three seconds better than the previous girls' meet record of 21:52, set at the first Panther Invitational in 2016 by Gianna Forte of Bishop Snyder. The Maclay eighth-grader crossed the finish line 50 meters ahead of the runner-up, Community Christian eighth-grader Sarah Tychsen. A few steps behind Tychsen, Maclay eighth-grader Sofia Paredes took third in 22:07.


Including Porcher and Paredes, Maclay had six runners in the top ten, with the Marauders getting scoring performances from junior Madison Perkins (4th, 23:06), senior Kenzie Mazziotta (6th, 23:23), and seventh-grader Gracie Koeppel (23:36). Porcher, Paredes, Perkins, Mazziotta, and Koeppel logged a score of 21 points for their team, giving Maclay first place. Behind the runner-up performance of Sarah Tychsen, Community Christian was second in the team standings with 40 points. Led by the tenth-place, 24:06 performance of senior Natalie Laywell, host school John Paul II edged Aucilla Christian for third, 93 to 96.

Coming off a win seven days earlier at the Big Bend Invitational, Maclay's Junious Brown made it two in a row at the Panther Invitational, crossing the finish line with a lead of 200 meters. Brown may have demolished the field, but he also demolished the previous course record of 18:17, set in 2017 by Chris Porter of Wakulla. That same Chris Porter, now a senior at Rickards, was also under the old record, finishing runner-up to Brown in 18:16. David Keen, a North Florida Christian junior, placed third in 18:37.


After Keen came a cavalcade of Maclay runners, with senior James McDuffie fourth in 19:45, junior Damien Hundley fifth in 19:54, senior Alfredo Paredes sixth in 19:56, and sophomore Michael Sweeney seventh in 19:59. With that, the Maclay boys had a mathematically unbeatable score of nineteen points and the Panther Invitational team title. Behind Porter, Rickards was second with 60 points. Led by seventh-grader Chris Tychsen, Community Christian was third in the team scoring with 75 points.
