Watauga outruns Providence, East in meet

By Brett Honeycutt, Special Correspondent

Providence's Justin Niedzialek (15 minutes 41.12 seconds) edged Watauga's Will Hodges (15:41.36) at the finish to help produce Mecklenburg County's leading time in the N.C. 4A Western Regional at McAlpine Park on Friday.

Watauga won the boys team competition by 14 points over East Mecklenburg.

In the girls race, Watauga took the top three spots to beat Providence by 14 points as Addie Bower ran 19:22 to take individual honors.

Niedzialek and Hodges ran together the entire way, with neither gaining a considerable edge.

"I hate that anybody had to lose that," Watauga coach Randy McDonough said. "I just loved the way they battled each other. They both ran a great race."

The girls race had a decisive winner in Bower, who won by 42 seconds over teammate Jennifer Phelps.

Providence, the defending girls state champions, ran its top five runners in a pack for most of the race, which helped counter Watauga's dominance up front and make the girls team race closer.

A surprise in the girls race was the third-place finish by East Mecklenburg, which had injuries the entire season and had yet to run with its complete team.

"I think probably the frustration from my end was knowing it (the talent) was there, and not being able to put it together," East Mecklenburg coach Larry McAfee said.

The top four teams in each race and the top five boys and girls individuals not on the top four teams also qualified for the state meet on November 12 at McAlpine.

Boys individuals qualifying were: Josh Morgan and Michael Mauriello of South Mecklenburg, Ric Maroni of AC Reynolds, Joe Cornwell of Alexander Central and Robert Stephens of East Burke.

In the girls race: Courtney Horn of Myers Park, Kim Robinson and Stephanie Alexander of West Mecklenburg, Kelly Swords of Ashbrook and Dearborn McHaley of AC Reynolds.
