On a brilliant blue day Calhoun junior Anna Sampson was a shining example for the Red Devils as she breezed to victory in the Calhoun Invitational Tuesday afternoon at the Calhoun County Park.

Sampson covered the 3.2-mile course in 25:27 to beat the second place finisher by more than a minute.

On the high school boys side Calhoun's Josh Parsons was fourth with a fast time of 21:07.

The most dominating performance probably took place in the middle school girls run when Makayla Shamblin of Elkview had a blistering time of 11:42 over the two-mile course to beat the second place finisher by almost two minutes.

On the boys middle school side Zach Morgan of Doddridge won with a time of 13:12, :16 better than teammate Dillon Muhley-Alexander.

Sampson was backed by fellow junior Maria Kisner, who had a time of 30:38.

Other Calhoun runners included Kayla Hixon (31:13), Carrie Graffius (33:52), Tracy King (34:09) and Athena Wagner (38:44).

For the boys Cai Clothier back Parsons with a time of 25:58 while Will Oshe had a time of 27:27.

Roane's Randy Price won the event with a time of 19:44.
