Poole, Bartlett victorious at Holy Comforter

Maclay School's Lindsey Poole covered a three-kilometer course in 13:35 to run away with the girls' race at a middle-school cross-country meet at Tallahassee's Holy Comforter Episcopal School on Thursday, 22 October 2009. Poole finished almost a minute ahead of runner-up Liza Ray, also of Maclay, who ran 14:32. Maclay dominated the girls' race, capturing the first six places and putting all eight of their runners in the top ten.

In the boys 3K race, Bennett Harrell and Jared Grigas of Holy Comforter moved into the lead near the end of the first kilometer. Behind them, however, Cornerstone's Avery Bartlett was moving up through the pack. By the end of the second kilometer Bartlett had closed on Harrell and Grigas. During the third kilometer Bartlett began building his own lead, going on to win the race in 12:39. Harrell was second in 12:50, just ahead of third-place Grigas's 12:51.

Holy Comforter Episcopal School's cross-country course is in a meadow behind the school's campus on Fleischmann Road, formerly a cow pasture on Welaunee Plantation, the same property from which the nearby Miccosukee Greewnway was carved. A shallow ravine cuts the meadow, so runners climb and descend several slopes as they loop around the meadow. There are very few trees so the runners don't get much shade, but spectators can see almost the entire course, especially if they bring a pair of field glasses.
