WEST JEFFERSON — Four teams took part in last week’s cross country meet at Ashe County High School. The Huskies were joined by Elkin, West Wilkes and North Wilkes as the regular season begins to wind down.

Ashe finished first in both team scores and also had the first place runner in the women’s race.

Freshman Mahaley Cronk added another win on the season with a 49-second victory over second place Victoria Young of North Wilkes. Cronk finished the race in 20:49.

Ashe’s Madison Warner placed third in 22:39 while Zoe Schell was fourth in 23:19. Malorie Eller was seventh with a time of 24:00 and Olivia Randolph placed eighth in a time of 24:13.

The Lady Huskies won the meet with 15 points overall. None of the other teams had enough runners compete to receive a team score.

On the men’s side, Ashe finished with 23 points, good enough to beat Elkin’s total of 39 points. North Wilkes tallied 71 points while West Wilkes did not have enough runners for a team score.

The Blackhawks did end up with the top finishing runner in the race, however, with Brandon Miller winning in 16:54. Ashe County’s Tafton Baker was second in a time of 17:23. A group of Husky runners took four more top 10 finishing spots. Jake Shepherd placed fifth in 18:45, followed by David Roten in sixth (19:40), Riley Richardson in seventh (20:06) and Terek Ashley in eighth (20:10).
