Monster Dash 6K & 2K Trail Run this Saturday

Cape Fear Flyers were showing their talents again October 15th at the New Hanover County Championship Cross Country Race!  Runners from clubs around the county met a Hugh McRae to compete in a 1 mile run for elementary age boys and girls and a 2 mile run for middle school boys and girls.  The event was sponsored by Without Limits and included runners from Without Limits, Cape Fear Academy, St. Mark Catholic School, Kids Run the Nation, Myrtle Grove Christian, Southeastern Homeschool, and the Cape Fear Flyers.
The races began with the middle school runners.  Paxton Chitty and Riley Perdue represented the girls and had a 2 mile time of 14:03 and 18:00 minutes.  Paxton came in 2nd place and Riley in 17th.  The boys were also looking good with Owen Thordike and Zachary Knott taking 1st and 2nd places with times of 12:23 and 12:47 minutes.  Next was Cian Perry who placed 6th with a time of 13:32.  Evan Acome came in next with a time of 15:58 placing 22nd and Cole Donner came in 27th with a time of 17:21.  The efforts of all these boys gave them first place as a team competing against 2 other teams and 27 runners in all.
The elementary mile, ran practically in the dark, was another huge success for the Flyers!  For the girls Sara Martin and Maris Toppin took 1st and 2nd with times of 6:54 and 7:03.  Not far behind them was Elle Sawyer (5th – 7:11), Katelyn Carter (6th – 7:27), Hannah Grace (7th – 7:31), Holly McKee (9th – 7:46), Aspen Sawyer (10th - 7:46).  Still more girls dominated with Ireland Sawyer, Danner Harrison, Reese Ingram and Anna Scott Witzenman taking 14th-17th with times 8:43, 8:58, 8:58, 9:09 respectively.  Sydney Johnson (20th – 9:41), Eva Lilly Perry (22nd – 10:17), Lilly McKee ( 24th – 11:08) and Kaydee Acome (25th – 11:20) also pulled in great times for the elementary girl flyers!  Remember these girls range from 1st grade – 5th grade!  All their efforts landed them in first place as a team.
Finally the elementary age boys showed amazing effort!! Isaiah Perry and Sawyer Harrison took 1st and 2nd place with a time of 7:04, separated by only 7 hundredths of a second.  Carter O’Donnell then came in 4th with a time of 7:36.  Jackson Norr and Jack O’Donnell soon followed placing 7th and 8th with times of 7:49 and 8:13.  Maddox Ross and Porter Harrison placed 13th and 14th with times of 8:36 and 8:43.  Trey Medlin and Dillon George finished it up for the team placing 17th and 18th with great times of 10:35 and 11:12!  Another excellent race!
