SILOAM SPRINGS -- The 12th annual Simmons Foods Cross Country Classic was a showcase for some Carroll County runners last weekend in the small school 4A-and-down division.

The Green Forest girls finished first, with the Berryville junior high boys also first. The Eureka Springs senior high boys finished third.

Coaches had the following comments about members of their squads.

Eureka Springs -- Coach Ben Lairamore said, "The senior boys finished third in the 4A-and-down division. Jacob Worley did real good, medaled (top 20), and Ian Reynolds and Arty Wells also medaled. Our junior boys did a real good job. I had two seventh graders medal, Jack McClung and Ryan Sanchez."

Girls coach James McVey said, "The junior girls did alright. Jazz Urioste and Eden Randolph both medaled. We finished fifth as a team. They're all working hard."

Berryville- Coach Doug Scheel said, "The junior boys won, took first. I couldn't have been prouder. We had six finish in the top 20. Ethan Chapin is a two-sport athlete. He's playing football and running and that takes a special kid. Rick Porter is having a great year. They're all doing good.

"The senior girls were third, which was pretty good. Katie Swofford was back, finished sixth. She's recovering from knee surgery. Jazmine Espinoza and Yulianna Castillo ran well, and Jeanette Morphin is coming on.

"Destiny Foster has been steady in junior girls. She finished fifth. Our seventh graders are getting better, coming on. We were missing Alejandra Solis, out with a bad ankle."

Green Forest- Coach Doug Owensby said, "Our senior girls won and we didn't have one runner, Carley Arnold. Our top three ran right together this week. Neisha Ball and Whitney McCoy looked pretty good, and Maranda Dickinson was leading, then got a stitch in her side.

"Beth Campbell ran 2:23 faster than last year on the same course, and Yennifer Lopez has been training hard. We're pretty solid right now.

"We have four boys training hard, and one coming from football, Hayden Poff. Martin Maravillas was fifth overall and is running solid, alng with Oscael Ramirez, Klisman Juarez, and Nathan Shaw. They're working hard."
