B-U’s Shreve owns fastest split time at Knight Night Relays

KINGWOOD – The Buckhannon-Upshur cross-country Lady Bucs ran in the annual Preston Knight Night Relays Saturday night.

Considered more of a ‘fun run,’ the teams are split up into relay teams and run at night under the lights of the Preston High School athletic field with additional lighting from tiki torches and natural moonlight.

B-U’s Samantha Shreve, fresh off her first place run last week at University, owned the top split time of all runners with a clocking of 8:37.2. The second-best split time belonged to University’s Abigail Rogers who owned an 8:38.5.

Shreve and her team of Anya Morehead, Mallory Moss and Mia Sappey finished sixth out of 27 teams from 14 schools with a time of 40.22.8.

Morgantown’s A-Team won the event with a clocking of 35:46.1 while the University A-Team was second with a time of 36.30.5.

For the Lady Bucs, Morehead had a time of 10:25.6, Moss ran an 11:02.3 and Sappey finished with a 10:17.7.

The Buckhannon-Upshur B-Team only had three runners so they couldn’t have a finish in the team standings, but their times were Angelina Winters with a 10:56.9, Martina Mota with a 14:10.7 and Pressley Bowers with an 11:50.7.

“It was a good night to relax and enjoy ourselves before things get really serious these next few months,” stated Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Taylor Stacy.

The Lady Bucs will be back in action Saturday hosting their lone home meet of the year with a start time of 9 a.m.

The results:


  1. Morgantown 35.46.1; 2. University 36:30.5; 3. Morgantown-B 38:56.1; 4. Parkersburg 39:19.6; 5. Preston 39:37.9.
