RIO GRANDE, Ohio — Gallia Academy High School had eight runners qualify for the regional tournament Saturday following the completion of the Division II District cross country championships held at the University of Rio Grande in Gallia County.


The Blue Angels finished fourth as a team in their race, which earned them the final spot available at the regional level. GAHS junior Michael Edelmann earned an individual spot at regionals after finishing 14th overall in his race.


Both boys and girls teams from Meigs and River Valley failed to advance anyone to the regional level, marking the end of their respective 2013 camapigns.


In the first Division II girls race, GAHS posted a team score of 109 points — which was well ahead of fifth-place Alexander (128) for the final regional berth. Athens won the team title with 48 points, while Allyson Malone of Alexander won the individual title with a mark of 19:32.52.


Madison Holley led the Blue Angels with a 10th place time of 20:47.75, while Hannah Watts was 13th overall with a mark of 20:51.61. Mary Watts (21:43.56) was 19th, Elizabeth Holley (22:38.13) was 26th and Jenna Bays (24:11.75) rounded out the team tally by placing 44th.


Taylor Queen (25:31.00) and Hayley Petrie (28:46.27) are also headed to regionals after respective efforts of 56th and 78th. River Valley finished 10th out of 12 teams in the same race as GAHS, posting a final team score of 267.


In the second D-2 girls race, Meigs placed eighth out of nine teams with 169 points. Zane Trace won the team crown with 44 points and Kimmy Wolfe of ZTHS won the individual title with a mark of 19:32.62.


In the first D-2 boys race, Sheridan came away with top honors after posting a team score of 26 points. Meigs was sixth overall with 171 team points, while Gallia Academy finished ninth out of 13 teams with 231 points.


Edelmann placed 14th overall and advanced to regionals with a time of 17:38.77. Matt Bromley of Sheridan won the individual crown with a mark of 16:05.23.


Athens won the final D-2 boys race with a tiebreaker, as both the Bulldogs and Unioto finished the day with team tallies of 74 points. David Magda of Unioto won the individual crown with a mark of 16:34.34.


River Valley placed seventh out of 10 teams with 173 points.


The top four teams and top 16 finishers not on an advancing team qualify for regionals in each race. The Division II regional meet will be held Saturday at Pickerington High School North.
