As expected, Rosewood turned in another strong performance during a Carolina 1A Conference cross country meet at the Cliffs of the Neuse on Thursday afternoon.
The Eagles competed against North Duplin and Hobbton.
On the boys’ side, Billy Strickland secured first place in 20 minutes, while Strickland’s teammates Carl Blevins (20:38.8) and Trent Schillinger (20:46.2) claimed third and fourth, respectively.
North Duplin’s Noel Rangel secured fifth in 21:54 — 44 seconds head of Rosewood’s Issac Strickland, who finished in sixth place.
On the girls’ side, Rosewood’s Jaylee Amy Fiona finished the course in 24:12– nearly five minutes faster than Hobbton’s Amalia Aguilar, who came in third.
Rosewood’s India Young (27.17) and Carson Crane (29:43) came in second and fourth, respectively. North Duplin’s Maria Rojas completes the course in 32:38 to secure seventh place.
Rosewood won the meet by default as North Duplin and Hobbton did not have enough runners to complete a team.
