Hartselle cross-country teams win county titles

Hartselle High School’s boys and girls cross-country track teams claimed Morgan County championship titles at the North Alabama Invitational at Oakville on Oct. 25.

Aaron Davis led the way in the boys division with a time of 17:54.34. He was followed by John Paulsen in third place with a time of 18:36.60. Chase Barnett came in fifth with a time of 18:58.45 and Alex Wilt finished in sixth place with a time of 19:27.13.

The Lady Tigers placed five runners in the top seven positions to win their county title.

Taylor Barnett finished in second place with a time of 21:59.29. Reagan Bowling came in third with a time of 22:55.46, Tiffany Pittman finished fourth with a time of 23:18.61, Abigail Davis was sixth with a time of 23:34.64 and Brantley Owens finished seventh with a time of 23:48.32.

“I was pleased with the way we ran,” said head coach Kenneth Lopez. “Two of our goals was to win the county championship and finish well in the Northwest Invitational. Some of our runners really stepped up and performed the way they needed to. This was probably the best we’ve done in the Northwest Invitational.”

“We’re kinda banged up,” he added, “so we’ll focus on getting rested and well this week, and getting mentally focused on the upcoming sectional meet.”

Competing against 18 teams in the Northwest championships, Hartselle boys came in sixth. Davis finished 14th, Paulsen 19th, Barrett 44th and Wilt 53rd.

In the girl’s division, Hartselle finished fourth among 17 teams. Barnett came in 14th while Bowling finished 28th, Pittman 36th and Davis 41st.

Hartselle will compete in the sectionals in Florence on Friday. The top three teams will advance to the state meet as well as the top six individuals runners on teams that do not make the state meet.
