Prep Cross Country: East Rowan sixth in 3A boys state meet

Staff report
East Rowan’s boys cross country team placed sixth in the 3A state meet held at Kernersville’s Beeson Park on Saturday.
Cardinal Gibbons (47 points) nipped Chapel Hill (48) for the boys title. East (211) also trailed Weddington (117), Orange (120) and Marvin Ridge (158).
Cole Honeycutt led the Mustangs. He was 16th overall in 16:52. Other East runners were Cal Meyers (53rd, 17:32), Conor Honeycutt (58th, 17:36), Brad Oden (66th, 17:46), Mark Almeida (77th, 18:00), Darin Basso (93rd, 18:20) and Graham Lyerly (108th, 18:44).
Seniors Cole Honeycutt, Oden and Almeida led East this season and helped the Mustangs qualify for their third straight state meet. The Mustangs have finished 10th, ninth and sixth.
The seniors were Rowan County champs all four of their high school seasons and NPC champs the last three years.
“All of our runners were displeased with their times and our overall place in the state today,” coach Rick Roseman said. “It’s obvious how determined and goal-oriented our kids are when sixth in the state is a disappointment.”
East will return freshman Conor Honeycutt, sophomores Meyers and Basso and Lyerly, a junior, next year.
“The program should remain strong,” Roseman said.
