The annual Bo Run championship cross country meet featured 275 runners from 15 different schools, including South Central, J.H. Rose, Ayden-Grifton and host D.H. Conley, at Boyd Lee Park on Saturday morning.

Along with the anticipated competition in eastern North Carolina, the meet served as a way for runners to return to normal following Hurricane Florence.

“We have coaches who came from Carteret County just so they can help these kids get their mind off of the damage from the hurricane,” Conley coach Charlie Justice said before the event. “There are even some runners from Wilmington high schools who had their parents drive them all the way here so they can run. Because they don’t have a team they are running unaffiliated just for the love of it.”

Leesville Road proved victorious in both the boys’ and girls’ team standings.

The DHC boys earned second place. The Vikings were led by Peyton Walters, who finished 11th overall with a time of 17 minutes, 20 seconds in the five kilometer race. Teammate AJ Miller was on Walters’ heels, taking 14th in 17:26.

South Central’s Fletcher Bost posted the best mark for Pitt County in the boys’ race, taking ninth place in 17:09.

The Conley girls took fourth place. Jennifer Perez was the squad’s top runner, finishing in 19th (21:33), and teammate Olivia Chiancone was 31st (22:02).

The Falcons’ girls were 10th, led by Paige Witteborg in 35th individually at 22:15.

Tran Quang (52nd, 19:07) posted the best run for Rose, and for A-G it was Elijah Dawson (65th, 19:34).

Rose and Ayden-Grifton did not run in the girls’ events.
