At the East Regionals at Manteo on October 30, every Ocracoke runner, boys and girls, ran their best times by a minute or more. There were 15 schools represented at the regional championships from 4 conferences. The first four teams would advance to the State Championships. The Dolphin girls placed 6th and the boys placed 4th, advancing on to the State championships this Saturday in Kernersville on November 6th. We send them off with encouragement and good wishes from the Ocracoke community.
The Dolphin boys are Joe Chestnut, Carlos DeLao, Wyatt Norris, Adam Carter and Andrew Tillett. The girls are Echo Bennink, Karina Rodriguez, Alin Tellez, Diana Perez and Annie Buchanan. Coaches are Kitty Mitchell and Charles Temple.
Congratulations! Below are a few photos, courtesy of Kitty Mitchell. Click on any photo to view a larger image.
