Girls Varsity Cross Country · Girls Varsity Cross Country finishes 6th place at Versailles Invitational


  Place Points
Coldwater High School 6th 158

As we get to the end of September, the Lady Cavs traveled to Versailles where they raced at the Tour De Sewer XC Invite. I know what you are thinking when you hear the words “Tour De Sewer”. Is it named after a prominent person in the community? Does it recognize a famous coach who sits in the pantheon of cross country coaches? Nope to all those guesses. It is literally a cross country course that gives you a “Tour” of the water treatment plant. The smell is at times unbearable, but this year they provided the ultimate item that tipped the scales in their favor as an outstanding meet…Chic-fil-a sandwiches. Nice move Versailles.

At the race, the Lady Cavs would finish 6th place out of 11 teams. While missing some key runners who were not at a 100%, the Cavalierettes battled hard and continue to move up the standing. The team was led again by Carlee Goodwin who nudged out Sara Hoingford. 30 seconds behind them would follow Lindsey Pease, Lily Schoenherr, and Elise Schwieterman. Rounding out the Varsity 7 were Shelby Homan and Beth Honigford. Beth Honigford would give the performance of the day not because of her finish, but her dedication to the team. Beth spent the morning in Huber Heights where she had to perform a number of tests to earn a contract with the Navy. It involved swimming, running, and other physical measures which if she hit a certain standard would earn her the position she would like to hold in the Armed Forces after school. When she finished with all the testing, she drove to the meet and jumped into the race. Thanks Beth on a job well done.

The Lady Cavs will get a weekend off before they make the finish push of the season that involves the Lion Invite, MAC Championship, and the post season run that starts at Columbus Grove. Good Luck Lady Cavs!!!
