  Place Points
Coldwater High School 3rd 73

The story this time of the season is to keep moving forward. Even when you fall, you fall forward with the idea to race another day. This is the best way to explain the Lady Cavs’ efforts at the District Meet at Columbus Grove. They didn’t have their best times as a team, but were still able to survive to prove themselves worthy to punch the Golden Ticket to the OHSAA State Championship. By finishing 3rd place, the Ladies from Coldwater qualified to the Regional meet which will be held next Saturday in Tiffin with the opportunity to race one more week in Hebron, Ohio with the other top teams in the state.
This week, the Cavalierettes were led by Haley Alig who would finish at the District Runner-up and avenging previous week loses to a Minster three-headed monster. Haley took the race out fast along with the rest of her team and would hold that margin for much of the race. When asked about her efforts, she merely said in Gump-fashion, “I like to run fast”. When you sure did run fast today. Tagging along as an individual regional qualifier was Beth Honigford, who also finished in the top 12 with a 9th place finish. When asked about her race, Beth would reply, “when is next weeks team meal going to be at?” Well Beth, it sounds like Thursday’s menu is at the Goodwin’s. I heard they will have a great spread for us.
The round out the team scoring and results, Sara Honigford would have one of her better finishes of the season as she is turning it on here lately. She was following by strong racing from Lily Schoenherr and Shelby Homan who held off multiple attacks from New Bremen runners once they enter the final stretch of the race. And Lindsey Pease and Carlee Goodwin would complete the team effort by finishing in true “Blob Fashion” by placing a mere 5 places from Lily and Shelby. Great job today in Columbus Grove. Time to think about Tiffin.
