Farmville Central runner Bobby Mill outpaced the group, finishing first overall on his home course with a time of 18:39 over the three-mile circuit on Monday to help the Jaguars boys claim victory against North Pitt and Greene Central in cross country action. 

The Jags finished with 19 total points to claim first place in the boys race. North Pitt finished in the middle of the pack with 44 points and Greene Central finished third with 79. The girls did not keep score because FC was the only school to field a full team.

FC’s Josh Ray finished second overall with a time of 20:24, and the Jags’ Brooke Schwieterman (23:38) won the girls’ race.

“The boys are running consistent, and they ran a good time here today,” Farmville coach Thomas Schwieterman said. “The girls struggled a little bit, but for a lot of them it was their first run for the whole year.”

The coach said the goal for the boys’ side is simple; repeat as Eastern Plains 2-A Conference champions.

North Pitt and head coach Matt Goddard also saw some strong points for the Panthers’ runners.

“We saw some commitment in the summer out of our group,” Goddard said. “Some of them are working 10- or 12-hour days and still coming out here and pushing each other.”

Erick Remcon was NP’s fastest runner, finishing fourth overall with a time of 21:20. Remcon’s sister, Maria, finished fourth for the girls group with a time of 34:11.

Greene Central’s performance pleased head coach Johnny Fleming. 

“I’ve seen some real good prospects this year on the team,” Fleming said. “Some guys got some potential, and we have some freshmen with potential. They look good so far for the first meet. They have some growing to do, but I think they are going to do real well by the middle of the season.” 

Evan Fleming was the fastest runner for the Rams, finishing 10th overall with a time of 24:33. Alyssa Keatts was the fastest female for the squad, finishing second in the girls group with a time of 31:20. 

All three coaches pointed out some potential star runners for the upcoming season. 

Fleming named a sophomore who continues to improve.

“Evan Kane, he was one of my top runners (last year),” Fleming said. “He is probably two to three minutes above where he started last year as a freshman. He’s doing a really good job starting out.”

Goddard marked an established senior who has proven his place as one of the Panthers’ top runners.

“Tre Hardee is a senior who went to regionals last year, went to states,” Goddard said. “He competes hard and really knows what he’s doing.”

Schwieterman pointed to the Jags’ top duo on Monday as the core of his team. 

“Josh (Ray) stands out. He ran a good race today,” Schwieterman said. “He did really well, and Bobby has been very consistent running his 18:39.”

The Jags’ next meet takes place on Sept. 5, when they host Beddingfield. North Pitt also plays host Sept. 5 versus SouthWest Edgecombe and Nash Central. Greene Central will be on the road that day at South Lenoir to face the Blue Devils and West Craven.
