Lady Pirate XC 3rd at Sectional, Regional Bound
Charlestown Lady Pirate Cross Country team is REGIONAL BOUND! The Ladies team finished 3rd, only 8 points out of runner up at today’s Southwestern hosted Sectional meet. Charlestown was led by Katie Rhodes who finished 6th, and Whitney Andrews’ 10th place finish earning them All Sectional Honors. Lady Pirate Alshya Flaget finished 16th, Gabi Gagnon 31st, Erin Kinbrell 32nd, Molly Sumner 54th, and Isabella Golja 57th. “I am so proud of the effort today! They had a goal of beating Southwestern (who won the New Washington Invite over us) and Madison, and the girls achieved both of those goals today! We knew if we could finish in front of them, that we would make it to Regional”, commented Coach Jerry Doyle. The Pirate boys team recorded a notable and Regional qualifying performance from Seth Parker; who finished 19th. Parker returns to the Regional round for the second straight year! “I told him that he knew what he had to do, and he went out and left nothing on the course”, concluded Coach Doyle.
