Two Charlestown XC Teams Medal at Hokum Karem

On another hot and very humid evening, the Charlestown Pirate and Lady Pirate Cross Country teams traveled to Sellersburg for the Darryl Kingery Hokum Karem meet.  In the team format ( 2 runners are a team ), the Charlestown team of Whitney Andrews/ Katie Rhodes placed 6th overall and Alysha Flaget/Gabrielle Gagnon placed 10th to earn medals!  On the boys side it was Seth Parker/Skyler Elmore placing 22nd to earn a medal! ( top 25 earn medals ).  One spot out of medal contention was Molly Sumner/Erin Kimbrell in 26th. The Hokum Karem format is a relay where each runner runs a mile, then tags their partner who runs a mile.  Each runner does this 3 times for a total of 6 miles per team.  “I also want to say that I am proud of Bree Ward/Isabella Golja and Matt Fellows/Darian Zeice.  Everyone gave it there best tonight in some very tough conditions!” commented Coach Jerry Doyle.
