Alex Dolwick of Grace Christian Raleigh and Sarah Bodmer of Cary Academy won individual championships Friday in the N.C. Independent School Athletic Association cross country championships in Hendersonville.
Dolwick (16:43.86) repeated as the 2A boys champion as a senior, though the Eagles’ streak of team titles ended at three. Grace finished third, placing Dolwick and junior Matt Horan (fifth overall) in the top 10.
Bodmer, a sophomore, nipped Ravenscroft’s Maddy Ringenbach to win the 3A girls. Durham Academy’s Eliza Dekker was running for a fourth consecutive 3A girls title and was in the lead at two miles, but felt dizzy and dropped out of the race.
In both 3A team races, Cary Academy was runner-up to Charlotte’s Providence Day.
