LOUISVILLE—The South Laurel boys and girls cross country teams had good showings in this past weekend’s Greater Louisville Classic.

On the girls’ side, South Laurel’s Phoebe McCowan once again continued her dominance in Saturday’s meet by placing fifth with a time of 18:58.50.

While the boys cross country team placed 17th as a team, with Drew Meader once again coming in at the top for the Cardinals. Meader finished in 29th place with a time of 16:32.80.

“Going into this meet we knew it would be a big field and a challenge,” said South Laurel boys cross country coach David Evans. “As a team we did not step up to the challenge, but we have several weeks of season left and I hope they realize they are leaving their legacy and mark on the South Laurel XC (cross country) program. So far we have had a special season and we don't want them to be remembered for being a pretty good team instead of the great team I know they are.”

“Drew Meader had an excellent race this past weekend and was able to run a huge PR (personal record) as well as break the South Laurel XC 5K record from 2003 (16:44) with his time of 16:32.80,” Evans added. “I could not be more proud of Drew, he has worked so hard and it's awesome to see him reaching his goals.”

The girls cross country team didn’t have enough runners compete on Saturday to score as a team but South Laurel girls cross country coach Carrie Kirby said she was really proud of the individual results from this past weekend.

“Phoebe (McCowan) went to work immediately with the start of the gun to find a route through the field of 319 runners to achieve her 5th place finish in Saturday's race with a time of 18:58,” said Kirby. “It was unfortunate that we lacked one runner to score as a team but the individual runners made up the difference with their performances. Emma Woods and Ellie Stanko both ran PR's (personal records) for the 2019 season. It's this type of execution that you like to see from your athletes at this point in the season.”
