Freshman Lily Wortham recorded the best time on her team at 23:37.60 for 43rd place individually. Junior Kaylan Belew was right on her heels at 23:41.48 for 44th place, and and freshman Adalyn Allen wasn’t very far behind in 47th place with a time of 23:48.05.

Sophomore Keller Smith delivered the best showing for the Huntingdon boys with a time of 18:55.97 for 49th place.

The HHS boys had to compete without their fastest runner, sophomore Colton King, who had to go into quarantine due to COVID issues shortly before the state meet.

King grabbed a silver medal at the regional meet in Martin, and, according to Lott, he was projected to finish in the top 10 at state. Last year, King placed 16th individually at state as a freshman.

Other Huntingdon runners competing at state last week included: female runners Annabelle Singleton, Kaylan Belew, Addison Postlewait, Lisa Fuller, and Sophie Singleton; and male runners Ethan Lewis, Carson Warman, Jaylon Yarbrough, Sam Allen, and Hunter Williams.
