The State AA Cross Country Meet results for two LBHS runners:
As always, the State AA races were phenomenal. We had 2 athletes from the team qualify. Eryn Turney, a senior, represented our girls team and ran extremely well only a few seconds shy of her personal best time. She was voted most valuable this past season by her teammates and ran a great race against a very competitive field. We’re all very proud of what Eryn has accomplished in cross country the last four years. She has truly represented LB with class.
Michael McBane also represented Lord Botetourt after qualifying as the Region III runner-up last week. Michael finished his cross country career at Lord Botetourt by running his best race ever. Out of a field of over 140 of Virginia’s best AA runners, Michael placed 8th overall gaining All-State honors and securing a personal best time of 16:09. Michael too was voted most valuable at our banquet and certainly ran that way on Saturday.
