Deland Saville leads PHS Varsity XC at Oak Mountain

The Prattville men’s and women’s cross country teams traveled to Heardmont Park in Birmingham this Saturday to compete in the Oak Mountain Cross Country Invitational.  The hot and sunny morning combined with a challenging 2 loop course produced slower times than usual.  In fact, only one Prattville runner, sophomore Ben Shavers, beat his personal record (PR).

The entire Prattville women’s team raced amongst a crowded field of 189 runners in which 19 schools were represented with 15 schools competing as teams.  The fastest time was 20:08 from John Carroll HS.  Spain Park took 1st place in team competition with 73 points.  The Lady Lions placed 7th with 222 points, just 1 point ahead of Mountain Brook.  The PHS varsity team scored as follows:

  • Kendra Jacobs (So.) –  24:42, 43 overall, 37 points
  • Susan Short (Jr.) – 24:45, 45 overall, 38 points
  • Katlyn Gappa (So.) – 24:53, 48 overall, 41 points
  • Savannah Cowart (Sr.) – 25:19, 60 overall, 49 points
  • Karlie Lugen (So.) –  26:06, 75 overall, 57 points
  • Natalie Murphy (Sr.) – 26:23, 80 overall, 59 points
  • Rebecca Schannep (8th Gr) – 27:33, 102 overall, 68points

Due to the large number of male runners, two separate races were held.  The Prattville men’s varsity team ran in the Varsity Blue race at 9:00am amongst 134 runners in which 20 schools were represented with 16 schools competing as teams.  The fastest time was 16:44 from Hewitt-Truss.  Oak Mountain took 1st place in team competition with 27 points.  Prattville, led by senior Deland Saville’s top-25 finish, placed 6th with 189 points . The PHS varsity team scored as follows:

  • Chris Jones (So.) – 20:35, 49 overall, 43 points
  • Gabe Rissman (Gr 8) – 20:37, 51 overall, 45 points
  • Colby Askins (Sr.) – 20:45, 53 overall, 47 points
  • Kevin Jacobs (Sr.) – 21:04, 57 overall, 50 points
  • Reese Galloway (Sr.) – 21:11, 60 overall, 52 points

The Prattville men’s JV team ran in the Varsity Red race at 9:40am amongst 165 runners in which 10 schools competed in team competition.  The first place time was 19:01 from Hewitt-Truss.  Spain Park took 1st place with 30 points. The Prattville JV team, led by sophomore Aaron Glidden, placed 7th with 236 points. The PHS JV team scored as follows:

  • Aaron Glidden (So.) – 21:26, 42 overall, 31 points
  • Raul Ortiz (So.) – 23:07, 84 overall, 49 points
