Lions and Dukes dominate the field at EBC | News, Sports, Jobs

ALLIANCE – The Minerva Women’s Cross Country Team always arrives when it matters most.

The Lions passed Salem in a battle between two of the top Division II teams in Ohio at the Eastern Buckeye Conference Cross Country Championships on Saturday.

Minerva, eighth in the standings, won five of the top nine riders for the fourth year in a row with a total of 31 points. Salem, third, was not far behind with 36 points.

“The EBC is a very strong league for cross country”, Minerva coach Olivia Scott said. “Salem has been ranked in the top three coaching polls in the state all season. The Quakers were in the lead for the first 2,500 meters of the race and our girls just started to move and gain the upper hand. We are very proud to defend our title against a lot of competition. “

Marlington siblings Noah Graham and Bella Graham repeated themselves as individual champions on the rain-covered 3.1 mile course at Marlington High School. Noah won for the fourth year in a row.

Just behind Bella Graham in the girls’ race were Salem freshmen Maggie Hall and Maggie Hopple second and third respectively.

The next four runners were from Minerva, Hera Hoffee, Hannah Ison, Kayla Crissman and Jenna Cassidy. Tori Dunham finished ninth as the Lions won another league title.

“The girls were so focused and determined today” Scott said. “We developed a racing strategy at the start of the week and they executed it to perfection. I am very proud of these girls. Winning our fourth straight league championship and building on the great tradition of our program is something all runners, past and present, should be proud of. “

Also for the Quakers, Molly Hopple finished eighth, Megan Stafford 11th and Ella Double 12th.

The Marlington boys, ranked No. 1 in the division, were the big winners. The Dukes had five of the top seven runners for 20 points, followed by Minerva with 68, Salem 87 and West Branch 93.

Connor Shingleton of Minerva was the only rider to break through the Marlington field up front. Shingleton was second despite a nasty fall in the woods.
