11-2girlsquartetlwCABOT — Sydney Wilson, Olivia Orr and Bree Hood each earned all-conference honors by finishing in the top 10 at the 7A-Central Conference cross country championships at Rolling Hills Country Club on Tuesday.

The trio led the Lady Hornets to a second-place finish overall. Conway won the team title with 33 points. Bryant took second with 60 points with Cabot third at 64 and Mount St. Mary Academy of Little Rock fourth with 88.

Individually, Wilson finished seventh with a time of 21:36.39. Orr, a freshman, took ninth at 21:51.77 and Hood 10th at 21:58.52. Just missing all-conference standing was Bailey Brazil who was right with her teammates in a time of 22:09.60 as she finished 11th.

Completing the scoring group of five was Lauren Hart, who ran a 24:18.04 to finish 24th. Bryant’s top seven also included Sarah Rogers (28th, 24:23.49) and Natasha Hobby (30th, 24:33.37).

“They ran a very smart race,” said Lady Hornets coach Keith Dale. “Sydney, Olivia, Bree, and Bailey stayed in a tight pack pushing each other through the

race. Lauren Hart came back from an injury to help secure our second-place finish over Cabot.

“It’s difficult to compete with Conway’s depth this year,” he mentioned. “They ended up moving two ninth graders up (like we figured they would) that really made it difficult to score. We did all we could and I’m extremely proud of our young ladies’ runner-up finish.”

Bryant will compete at the Class 7A State meet, set for Nov. 12, at Hot Springs.
