Cross-Country: Bishop Ireton boys, Paul VI girls win
Bishop Ireton won the Virginia Catholic Schools state boys’ cross-country championship on Tuesday. The Alexandria school defeated Peninsula Catholic by three points to capture its first state title since 1986. Roanoke Catholic and Paul VI rounded out the top four.
Ireton’s Michael Anderson came from behind over the last 400 meters to win the individual title. He finished the 5K course in Newport News in 16 minutes 36 seconds, one second ahead of runner-up Wyatt Haas of Benedictine. Paul VI’s Blaize Johnson was not far behind in third (16:42).
Paul VI’s Lizzie Greene won the girls’ race comfortably in 19:16 and led the Panthers to their first team title since 2005. Paul VI was dominant, putting five scorers in the top 10—Greene, Meghan Blackstone, Meaghan Grant, Gabbi Nieves and Cristina Kling—and easily outdistancing Ireton, Peninsula Catholic and Bishop Sullivan.
