Winders Brothers Highlight Another Weekend of Competition


They did it again.

Titus and Silas Winders finished first and second for the fourth time this season at the Frank Horton Invitational. 

In the process, Titus ran a season best mark.

He said after the race that the first mile may have gone our a little quicker than he expected. But the senior from Henry County was ready for a breakthrough at the Memphis area meet.

Titus crossed the line in 15:12, nearly a minute ahead of his brother in second. That's twelve seconds faster than his winning time at the Brooks Memphis Twilight.

Here's what Winders' season has looked like so far.

Silas still put together one of the best races we've seen this season by a sophomore. His runner up time of

16:12 was the fourth fastest time run over the weekend. But he's still the fastest sophomore in the state. 

Winders is the only sophomore in Tennessee to break 16 minutes this season.
The girls race featured the fastest time of the weekend. It was run by Skylar Boogerd of Arlington.

She crossed the line nearly 30 seconds ahead of Gabrielle Sawyer, who ran the fifth fastest time in the state.

Boogerd was All-State a season ago in the AAA classification. This season, she's got two wins under her belt. She's shown a solid progression over the course of this season so far.

Coughlin, Villegas Finish Top Five in Kentucky
Carter Coughlin was the first to the finish line once again over the weekend. This time it was north of the border at the Greater Louisville Classic.

Coughlin paced a large field of over 350 athletes. That field included some of the best teams in Kentucky, led by St. Xavier and Trinity out of Louisville.

Oak Ridge's Jose Villegas got below 16 minutes for the first time this season after coming a second shy to open the year in Knoxville. His 15:48 placed him 4th in the loaded field.
