The boys team race was a good one and a close one between Kempsville and Cox. It was actually decided as close as you can get. Kempsville edged out the Cox Falcons by a disheartening 1 point margin, 55-54. The close team score could probably be symbolized by the finish of the respective teams' front runners. Those two runners being seniors Jeff Hedley of Kempsville and Ted Herbert of Cox. Hedley was able to hold off Herbert for third as Hedley came in at 16:20 and Herbert following in at 16:23.6.
Also advancing to the Eastern Region Meet next week were Ocean Lakes (65 pts) and Kellam (85 pts).
The Cox girls got a little more breathing room for their district title than the Kempsville boys did, but not by much. The Lady Falcons managed a team total of 44 points as they were led by Lauren Frisk who won the individual district crown as she just edged out Ocean Lakes' Selina Sekulic for an exciting finish. Frisk nipped Sekulic at the line by .2 of a second as Frisk ended up with a time of 19:12.1 and Sekulic was just behind her at 19:12.3.
Other Beach District girls teams advancing to the Eastern Region Meet next week were Sekulic's Ocean Lakes (53 pts), Kempsville (71 pts), and Princess Anne (100 pts).
