Polk County junior India Godlock earned all-state honors Saturday, placing fifth in the North Carolina 2A cross county championships at Ivey Redmon Sports Complex in Kernersville.

Polk County’s Sean Doyle came home 11th in the 2A boys meet.

Godlock posted a time of 20:24.53 on a sloppy and slow 5K course. Carrboro senior Amanda Hickey won the state title with a time of 19:20.75.

Godlock is the first Polk County runner to earn all-state honors at the 2A level and the best state finish at any level since Elisabeth Elliott won the state 1A title in 2005.

Brevard nipped Carrboro by nine points to win the state 2A girls team title. Hendersonville placed 11th in the team standings.

Doyle posted a time of 17:11.86 in his final meet as a Wolverine. Frank Kenny of the North Carolina School of Science and Math won the state crown with a time of 16:37.41, nipping Brevard’s Noah Graham by a half-second.

Doyle’s finish is also the best for any Polk County runner in the 2A state meet since John Spencer Wolfe placed third in the 2009 2A state championship.

North Carolina School of Science and Math also won the 2A team title, finishing four points ahead of Durham School of the Arts.
