LURAY, Sept. 28 — Despite not winning top honors in a four-team cross country meet on Wednesday at Chrisman Field, it was still a big day for Luray. The LHS boys and girls cross country teams both saw Bulldogs post performances among the best all-time in school and course history.

Sophomore Davey Johnson finished in second place among 30 runners with a time of 17:09.30 — just five seconds behind the LHS record of 17:04 (W. Sutphin). The boys race was won by Bryson Barnett of Chelsea Academy, who posted a time of 16:44.56 — the second best time ever recorded at Chrisman Field. The course record is held by a Warren County runner (O’Reilly) with a time of 16:34. Johnson’s time of 17:09 was the fifth-best ever recorded at Chrisman Field.

Luray’s Conner Janney came in third during Wednesday’s cross country meet with a time of 18:33.69 — the 10th best time in LHS boys cross country history. Luray’s Eli Jones finished in fourth place (18:44.69). Three other Luray runners finished in the top 15 — Jacob Bowman 13th (20:10.77), Wyatt Seal 14th (20:21.87) and Josh Nuckols (20:25.31).

Chelsea Academy won the boys team competition, while Luray finished second.

In the girls cross country race, Luray’s Carolina Wood finished in second place among 21 runners with a time of 21:13.60 — the fifth-best time recorded at Chrisman Field for girls, and the second-best time among female runners at LHS all time. The LHS female cross country record is 20:48 posted by D. Teter on Oct. 20, 2010.

Strasburg’s Claire Keefe won the girls race with a time of 20:01.04 — the third best female time ever recorded at Chrisman Field. That record stands at 19:12 posted by Wilson Memorial’s Rose on Oct. 20, 2011.

Luray’s Briana Plum finished fourth on Wednesday with a time of 23:11.87. Two weeks earlier, Plum found her way in the record books by posting a time of 22:37 at Chrisman Field — good enough for seventh all time among female cross country runners at LHS.

Two other Bulldogs finished in the top 15 in the girls race — Erin Savedge 12th (27:07.92) and Alayna Roy 14th (28:39.73).

Chelsea Academy won the girls team competition as well, while Strasburg took second and Luray third.
