Cuthbertson and Weddington both had runners who earned all-American status at the New Balance Indoor Nationals, which were held March 8-10 in New York, N.Y. at the Armory Track and Field Center.
Weddington narrowly missed winning the 4×800-meter relay, but fell to the No. 1 team in the country, Virginia’s Loudoun Valley by just 0.16 seconds.
Weddington’s team of Will Mazur, Jackson O’Hara, Jake Toomey and Kyle Durham finished in 7:40.65, a time that broke Green Hope’s N.C. all-time record and also was the fourth-fastest indoor time in the U.S.
Teammate Emerson Douds earned all-American status with his 21.57-second run in the 200, which was good for fourth place at the meet.
Cuthbertson’s boys tandem of Aidan McNally, Ashton Spangler, Bradon Black and Kyle Stamper earned all-American status for their run of 3:31.39 in the 1,600 sprint medley relay.
That time was N.C. No. 1 this season and the fourth-fastest time in state indoor history.
Not to be outdone, the Cuthbertson girls quartet of Gabriella Castro, Kaitlyn St.Hilaire, Madeline Hill and Leah Helms placed fourth in the 4×1-mile relay with a run of 21:07.09, which is the fastest time in N.C. this season and the N.C. No. 3 time on record.
Cuthbertson’s team of Black, McNally, Spangler and Aaron Zimmerman also placed third in the 4×400 emerging elites race with a time of 3:23.68, which was the 12th-best time in N.C. this season.
