Eastern Mennonite Invitational Coverage Sep 15, 2013

Nelson County had both of the individual race winners at the Eastern Mennonite Invitational just outside of Harrisonburg on Saturday with James Ballowe able to pull away from Charlottesville junior Riley Covert (17:06) for a 17:03 victory in the boys' race, while teammate Ramona Bryant also won by a 3 point margin in the girls' race over Central (Woodstock) sophomore Lexi Keller (21:03) as she crossed the line first at 21 minutes flat. Both Ballowe and Bryant expect to compete for high state meet finishes in the Group 2A classification later this fall at Great Meadow.
