Two seasons of varsity competition, two state championships for Holy Trinity Classical Christian School’s girls cross country team.
The Lions won the SCISA Class 1A girls cross country title for the second straight year as Mills Langehans captured her second straight individual crown Saturday at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School in Columbia.
Holy Trinity’s boys finished second, two points behind Covenant Christian. Beaufort Academy was seventh in the boys standings and had four girls compete – one fewer than the minimum to post a team score.
Langehans, a ninth-grader, ran away from the pack to finish the 5K race in 20:20 – a full 2:37 ahead of the runner-up. Izzy Hipple (24:09) and Virginia Brunson (25:12) also posted top-10 finishes for the Lions, and Beaufort Academy’s Maeve Kalady was fifth in 23:35.
In the boys race, Logan Lawson finished in 18:23 to lead the Lions with a third-place finish, while Luke Greene (19:16) was eighth.
