Newton’s Coy, Hunt, Soule turn in personal-best times at Perry
PERRY — Junior Hailey Coy, who has had some tough luck at the last two cross country meets for Newton, turned in a tough race Thursday to lead the Cardinals to fifth place in the team standings at the Perry Leon Fox Invitational.
Coy posted a personal-best time of 16 minutes, 27.76 seconds in the 4K race, claiming the eighth-place medal. At the Newton home meet Sept. 24, Coy fell twice during the race but finished, and Tuesday at Knoxville, she pulled out during the race because of a knee problem.
“Hailey came out ready to race,” said Rachelle Tipton, Newton girls’ head coach. “She lowered her best time by six seconds. The starts of her last two meets showed she was ready to bust out.”
