AAA National District
Edison swept the National District championships at Burke Lake on Wednesday. It was the second straight title for the girls and the third in a row for the boys.
Individual winner Myah Hicks (18:11) won on the 2.98-mile course by 70 seconds and led the Eagles to a 28-45 victory over Yorktown. Falls Church (66 points) and Washington-Lee (113) rounded out the top four.
The boys from Edison survived district newcomer Hayfield by one point, 49-50. Falls Church (97) was third and Washington-Lee (106) finished fourth. Hayfield junior John Bozek won the individual title in 16:19, four seconds ahead of Edison junior and runner-up Gerardo Munevar.
AAA Cardinal District
Osbourn Park seniors Ariel Karabinus and Ashley Wybersky finished 1-2 last Thursday at the Cardinal District championships in Lorton, sparking the Yellow Jackets to the team title in their first season competing in the district.
Osbourn Park, which won the Cedar Run District title last year and has been one of the Washington area’s most formidable teams, scored just 19 points to easily outdistance defending champ Forest Park (52 points), Woodbridge (85) and Gar-Field (112). Karabinus won on the 5K Occoquan Regional Park course in 19 minutes 9 seconds and Wybersky finished 11 seconds later.
Woodbridge won the boys’ title behind a pair of 1-2 finishers. Gabriel Wentlandt (17:12) and Ryan McGreal (17:32) helped the Vikings score 36 points and squeak past Forest Park (38). Osbourn Park (57) and Hylton (114) rounded out the top four.
AAA Commonwealth District
Mountain View senior Kaitlyn Davis won the Commonwealth District championship Thursday at Willowmere Park in Stafford and also sparked the Wildcats to the team title. They finished ahead of Colonial Forge, North Stafford and Albemarle.
In one of the toughest districts in Virginia, Davis won on the five-kilometer course in 18:20. She was seven seconds ahead of runner-up Katherine Walker of Brooke Point. Stafford freshman Hannah Lowery (19:02) was third.
The boys from Mountain View made it a Wildcats sweep by putting five scorers in the top 10. Runner-up Brad Shultis, Robert Thomas, Nicholas Wolfe, Grant Shoope and Logan O’Baker scored 29 points and finished comfortably ahead of Colonial Forge (56), Albemarle (82) and Stafford (83). Albemarle senior Anthony Kostelac finished four seconds in front of Shultis in 16:09 to take the individual title.
