Hale, Butler Win a Muddy Wickham Park Jamboree; Race Video Posted Sep 6, 2008

Not unexpectedly, Kayla Hale dominated the race from nearly the start.  Under muddy conditions the Holy Trinity senior opened her season with a time of 18:56.  Her closest competitor was Juliana Stern of Satellite, almost a minute back at 19:49.   Although it is an unofficial, non-scored meet Holy Trinity dominated the female race going 1-3-4-5-7 (Hale, Teresa Ristow, Melissa Jones, Brianna Wahy, Savannah McKendree).  It should be noted that Satellite did not run with all their guns blaring today. On the boys side the race was perhaps more competitive, and Holy Trinity was similarly impressive--especially up front.  The Tigers' took first and second with excellent opening times from Bret Butler (16:24) and David Kilgore (16:27).  James Stern of Satellite was third in 16:41.  The rest of Holy Trinity's top five were Tyler Truitt 16:56, Joey Castagnaro 17:26, and Alex Brown 18:57.  They were without normal number five Adam Cooke.
