Setting the pace

JACKSONVILLE –
The Pleasant Valley cross country program opened its new on-campus course for business Saturday with an exciting start and an Olympic marathon style stadium finish. The racing was pretty good, too.
 
There was so much anticipation for the course, race organizers split the boys race into two divisions. More than 400 runners participated.

The course now gives Calhoun County four potential cross country championship venues – PV, White Plains’ course, Oxford Lake and Choccolocco Park.

White Plains’ James Middlebrooks established the course record (17:52.95) as he led the Wildcats to the team title in the Class 1A-4A boys race.
 
Saint James’ Presley Miles set the girls standard when she came in at 18:48.98, the sixth fastest time of the day regardless of gender. Arab won the girls team title, edging PV by five points.
 
Middlebrooks led a 1-3-5 White Plains finish in the boys small-school race. The Wildcats put its first four scorers in the top eight, scored 29 points and won the team title by 22 points over a Pleasant Valley team that was missing two of its top three runners.
 
“My boys have been working hard all summer to get in shape,” White Plains coach John Moore said. “They really want to win it all this year. It was a good day.
 
“Middlebrooks has his sights on the end of the season. Today’s win for him was great for his confidence. As a senior this was well deserved and much needed.”
 
Hewitt-Trussville bunched its five scorers between 7 and 13 and won the boys 5A-7A race by 21 points over Oxford. Pell City’s Jack Lowe won the race in 18:16.85.
