Maggie Twehues finishes fifth in the state as WCHS girls take ninth place
A strong cross country season for the Woodford County High school girls’ team came to a strong end at the KHSAA Class 3A State Meet Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park. As she has done several times this season, Maggie Twehues led the way, earning a fifth-place finish and a spot on the podium with the other top finishers for the class. As a team, the Lady Jackets earned a spot in the state’s top 10 by placing ninth.
Twehues also picked up an All-State Team selection from the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association for her season, which concluded Saturday with a time of 19:24.37. The conditions were much more favorable than the previous week’s weather at the regional meet, but times were slower for most of the Lady Jackets due to the more difficult topography of the course.
Similar to the week prior, Eva Kate Probus and Cassidy Gilbert were the next two Woodford runners to cross the finish line as they finished 37th and 39th, respectively, with just over one second separating their final times.
It’s been a successful season for the youthful Lady Yellow Jacket runners and 2020 promises to be another strong year for WCHS runners.
There will be more on the 2019 cross country season in next week’s Woodford Sun, including in-depth coverage pf the runners and state meet.
