James Middlebrooks and Cori Harrell were in fast pursuit at the Pilgrim Chase

PilgrimsWhite Plains High School is in Anniston, Alabama. Anniston is far enough north in Alabama that you won't see the White Plains Wildcats cross-country team racing in Dothan--situated in the far southeast corner of the state. Nevertheless, on Saturday morning, 24 November 2018, two weeks after Alabama's cross-country season was over, Wildcat sophomore James Middlebrooks was in Dothan's Westgate Park competing in the Pilgrim Chase 5K. Middlebrooks won the ninteenth annual trail race, running 18:47. Cori Harrell of Brookhaven, Georgia was the first woman in the Chase, placing eighth overall in 21:57.


Michael Warner, a 2017 alum of the Enterprise High cross-country squad, took second in 19:10. Jose Perez of Moca, Puerto Rico was the fastest master runner in the Pilgrim Chase, placing third overall in 19:48. Scottsdale, Arizona master runner Ashley Folkes ran 20:30 for fourth overall.


Natalie Warner was second in the women's standings and fourteenth overall in 22:35. Another sophomore harrier, Warner runs for the Enterprise High cross-country team. C J Parrish of Dothan was the third woman and 23rd overall in 26:25. Right on Parrish's heels in 24th, Dothan's Kristi Holland was the first woman master and fourth female finisher, clocking 26:25.


63 athletes finished the 2018 Pilgrim Chase 5K. The race was hosted by the Dothan Runners Club. The Club will be back on the Westgate Park Trails on Saturday morning, 29 December 2018, for their twentieth annual Last Gasp 5K Trail Race.
