Madison County beat all but one region opponent team last weekend at the East Jackson Eagle Run.
Habersham Central was the only AAAA team to finish higher than Madison County as the Red Raiders were led by the Brakhage twins to a seventh place finish.
“It was pretty good,” said coach Allyson Terrell. “We still are working on the gap between the second and third place runners to bring us to a better team scoring position. I am counting on Detrick Yamasato and Ben Larkins to help bridge that gap.”
Yamasato was the third placing runner for Madison County at the Eagle Run, followed by Dalton Owensby.
“Detrick began as the very last runner of 167 boys and finished at 57th place,” said Terrell.
Individually, Corey Brakhage (17:59.87) finished in fifth place, while Codey Brakhage (18:47.34) crossed the line in 15th. Both earned a top-20 medal.
Yamasato (20:06.84) passed Dalton Owensby (20:07.19) in the final feet to take 57th with Owensby taking 58th.
Steven Tucker (20:58.66) came in at 102nd, followed by Russ Hagen (24:07.64) at 158th and Alex Forisek (25:19.09) took 164th.
For the Madison County boys, the total run time was 1:37.60 for an average of 19:35.98.
Running individually, Madison County’s Elise Coberly finished 101st at 28:07.57. The Red Raiders did not have enough girls running to compete for team points.
Next for the Madison County runners is the Mainstreet News Meet at Jefferson High School Oct. 12.
