Morales, Chaire win FH2A Championships

DOBSON — The Foothills 2A Conference held its 2022 Cross Country Championship on Oct. 18 at Fisher River Park.

All seven FH2A conference teams sent runners to the event. Just like the 2021 conference championship, a runner from Surry Central took the boys individual title and a runner from North Surry won the girls title.

Surry Central’s junior Ignacio Morales was named FH2A Male Runner of the Year by winning the boys race. Morales’ championship time in the 5,000-meter run a year ago was 17:41.67 at Mount Airy’s Veterans Memorial Park. This year, Morales won the 5K by nearly a minute with a time of 16:54.30.

North Surry senior Cynthia Chaire competed in her first FH2A Championship in 2022 and was named FH2A Female Runner of the Year. The first-year cross country runner started the season with a first-place finish at Fisher River Park with a time of 23:34.51. She improved her time to 20:40.72 for Tuesday’s championship, which also set a new school record for North Surry.

Unlike 2021, when Surry Central and Wilkes Central each won a team championship, Wilkes Central won both the boys and girls’ team championships this season.

The team competition is scored based on the finish of a school’s top five times among qualifying schools. The only teams to receive points are those that have at least five runners. For example: a runner may finish No. 12 overall, but earn 11 points if someone in the top-12 is from a school that didn’t have five competitors.

North Wilkes and West Wilkes didn’t have enough runners to compete as a team in either race, while North Surry didn’t compete in the girls team competition and East Surry didn’t compete in the boys competition.
