Pope’s Ashley Kehoe and the Harrison girls were winners at the Clara Bowl Invitational on Saturday at Berry College.

Kehoe was the top finisher in the girls race, which was approximately 300 meters shorter than usual, due to a course error.

Meanwhile, Harrison won the team title on the strength of top-five finishes from Kira Stanley and Mattie Rountree. Heather Hall, Alex Lacy and Kayli Moody also contributed to the Lady Hoyas’ performance.

Pope was fifth overall, with Brittany Powell crossing the finish line ninth. Heather Thornton, Darden Hearn and Heather Giles rounded out the Lady Greyhounds’ top five.

North Cobb finished fourth in the boys race, with Harrison ninth and Pope 10th.

Though the Warriors did not have any top-20 runners, their runners were bunched tightly enough to help the team standout.

Jordan Wehner led North Cobb with a time of 17 minutes, 13 seconds, followed by Stephan Gardener (17:21), Nick Nasr (17:25), Josh Wehner (17:26) and Caleb Griffin (17:36).

Harrison was led by ninth-place runner Spencer Borchelt (16:48), and Pope by Jarrod Howell (17:42).


North Cobb makes semifinal run at county:
After going undefeated in pool play against Wheeler, Allatoona and Walker, the Lady Warriors opened bracket play with a 25-15, 25-11 win over Kennesaw Mountain before falling to Harrison 25-19, 25-16 in the semifinals.

Abby Miller had 29 digs, 25 kills and eight aces on the day, while Savanna Gonzales had 33 kills and 19 digs. Christina Matacotta led defensively with 50 digs, Jenna Woodruff and Lizzie Daniels combined for 29 kills and setter Taylor Parrish had 86 assists and five aces.
