Coahulla Creek boys cross country runs to a region title

The Coahulla Creek High School boys cross country team gave the school its first sports region championship in perhaps the most dominating fashion possible.

Led by senior Sadoth Fraire in first with a time of 17 minutes, 3 seconds, the Colts swept the top four places in the Region 5-3A championships to win the region title over host Cartersville at Dellinger Park.

Fraire was followed in order by Walt Douglas (17:43), Missael Fraire (17:52) and Timothy Hooper (17:55). The other counting score for the Colts came with Oscar Andres’ 12th-place finish (18:45).

It turned into a double celebration as the Lady Colts finished third to give both teams a berth in the Class 3A state championships on Tuesday in Carrollton.

“I expected a good showing, but that went over my expectations for sure,” Coahulla Creek cross country coach Josh Deslattes said. “They got real focused after (last week’s) ‘Big Harry’ Race. They wanted to win and knew they were in position to win and the gun fired and they never looked back.”

Like Deslattes, champion Fraire — who set a personal record five seconds faster than the one he set last week — also expected a good showing but had no idea that he would see nothing but his teammates when he looked back crossing the finish line.

“I was very surprised,” Sadoth Fraire said. “That was what we have always wanted, and it came true. I am really proud of the team for today’s race. We got what we wanted. That was our best race of the year.”

Cartersville’s boys finished second, but a team total was not available.

Morgan King was the top finisher for the Lady Colts with a time of 22:05 to finish in fourth. Other scorers for Coahulla Creek were Rachel Cherry (12th, 23:14), Bethany Goodwin (15th, 23:35), Evelyn Botello (16th, 23:37) and Ationza Smith (26th, 24:32). Cartersville won the title with 38 points, followed by Adairsville (69) and Coahulla Creek (73).

North Murray finished in eighth place for both boys and girls, but individual results were not reported by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.
