    Loudoun County High School standout Patrick Joseph began his senior cross-country season with a dominant performance at the Great Meadow Invitational Aug. 25 in The Plains. Joseph crossed the finish line in 16 minutes, 21 seconds to win the elite Varsity A race, nine seconds ahead of runner-up Ian Macleod of Stafford.

    Joseph, who won Virginia AA track and field titles in the 800-meter and 1,600-meter runs in the spring, placed third as a junior at the 2011 Virginia AA cross-country meet.

    Broad Run’s boys and Tuscarora’s girls earned the top finishes among local teams, both placing as runner-ups behind boys and girls team champion Battlefield.

    Mitch Clements (17:19) paced the Spartans in 13th place. Clements was one of five Spartans to place among the top 45. He was joined by Dane Boegner (17:42), Colm Gallagher (18:02), Ethan Newland (18:10) and Hugo Ballon (18:18).

    Woodgrove (fourth place), Tuscarora (sixth), Loudoun County (seventh), Dominion (eighth), Heritage (ninth) and Loudoun Valley (11th) also produced strong finishes on the boys side.

    Tuscarora’s top four girls completed the Great Meadow course within seven seconds of each other. Lori Kostka (20:53) led the way in ninth place, followed closely by Anna Wasko (20:56), Natalie Rosas (20:59) and Jannen Hermann (21:00).

    Heritage placed third in the girls’ standings and Loudoun County was fourth. The Raiders’ Ana Valdez (20:26) earned the top local individual finish with her sixth-place showing. Marisa Ohngemach (20:46) paced the Pride in eighth place.
