Coahulla Creek High School’s boys placed second out of 34 teams at the Chattanooga Cross Country League’s second meet of the season Tuesday at Camp Jordan in East Ridge, Tenn.

The Colts’ 132 points were second to the 40 scored by Chattanooga’s Baylor School, which had all five of its scoring runners finish inside of the top 15.

Sadoth Fraire placed seventh with a time of 18 minutes, 1 second on the 5K (3.1-mile) course to lead Coahulla Creek, which also had scoring finishes from Walt Douglas (10th, 18:18), Missael Fraire (32nd, 19:17), Junior Villarael (41st, 19:46) and Oscar Andres (42nd, 19:48).

The Lady Colts finished 13th out of 23 teams, with Morgan King (38th, 24:19), Bethany Goodwin (75th, 26:34), Landon Kidwell (80th, 26:51), Evelyn Botello (98th, 28:19) and Rachel Cherry (103rd, 28:36) all scoring.

In the junior varsity competition — in which boys and girls raced together — Coahulla Creek finished fourth out of 23 teams.

For the JV Colts, the top two boys were Timothy Hooper (first, 18:26) and Ethan Langford (31st, 21:56). The top two JV Lady Colts were Elizabeth Trejo (237th, 31:27) and Ashley Valdavinos (255th, 33:40).
