CHS’ Trammel, Woolsey run at state meet

Centennial senior Sarah Trammel made school history Saturday in Round Rock when she competed in her fourth state cross country championship.

“Sarah ran really well,” Centennial coach Sarah Eden said.

Trammel, running as an individual, finished 19th in a time of 18 minutes, 56.63 seconds at the Class 5A UIL state championship. It was her final run on the course at Old Settlers Park.

It was Trammel’s second best finish at the state meet. As a freshman, Trammel finished 12th in a time of 19:51.31. That year, the course was laden with mud, so the times were much slower. Last season, Trammel placed 20th overall in a time of 18:32.44. As sophomore, she finished 34th in a time of  19:02.17.

Eden said she is going to miss Trammel’s consistency and leadership she has brought to the team.

“Sarah has meant so much to this program and to go to state four years in a row is quite an accomplishment.” Eden said. “She’s never had a really bad race.”

Centennial sophomore Harli Woolsey placed 34th in a time of 19:17.52. It was second time for Woolsey to compete at state. Last season, Woolsey finished third in a time of 17:59.71.

“Harli didn’t have a great race,” Eden said. “She was disappointed. But like I told her ‘your worse day was good enough to finish in the top 34 in the state.’ You can be disappointed but it’s not indicative of your whole season.”

Trammel and Woolsey competed at state last season with their teammates. It was the Lady Spartans first trip to state and they finished third.
