Montgomery powers Pine Crest to cross-country title

 

Special to The Miami Herald

Julia Montgomery, the speedster freshman at Pine Crest School, raced against the clock once again and showed no mercy to her opponents and finished with a time of 19 minutes 53 seconds.

With a blazing start setting the pace early, Montgomery showed no signs of slowing down, leading her team to a home victory at the first Pine Crest Cross-Country Invitational Meet held at Mills Pond Park on Thursday morning. Following Montgomery, teammates Ella Wurth, Mahlet Yared, Katherine Jovanovic and Savanna Gornisiewicz came in 1-4-5-7-8 places, respectively, to set the invitational bar high with a 25-point total for the win.

Montgomery said she is used to running with no competition but still strives to push herself to reach her goal.

“I didn’t get nervous at this race, but I still try to simulate the state race, pretending someone is actually in front of me,” she said.

University School senior Nelson Matthew won the boys’ cross-country race with a personal-record time of 17:59. Elated to finally break 18 minutes, Matthew has proved to others, including his coach Maryellen Powers, that he is going in the right direction to finally qualify to compete at states for the first time.

The Miami Country Day boys’ team won the meet with 80 points, beating runner-up Gulliver Prep by one point. Pine Crest came in third with 88 points.

The first Pine Crest Invitational was a success, with 14 schools competing and more than 500 athletes participating, including some of the top teams and runners from the state of Florida. Coach Paul Braur said: “I look forward to the meet growing bigger and bigger every year.”
