ALEXANDRIA, VA. - T. C. Williams High School produced two individual champions and clinched the team title in each of the four races at the 2017 Joe Halm Memorial Alexandria City Cross Country Championships on Oct. 4. Episcopal High School claimed the boys’ varsity champion and Bishop Ireton the girls’ junior varsity champion.

The annual competition among the four Alexandria high schools – Bishop Ireton, Episcopal, St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes, and T. C. Williams – was renamed in honor of Joe Halm, the long-time head coach of Episcopal’s cross country team who passed away unexpectedly in 2014. Joe’s wife Joey, oldest daughter Abby and son Mac presented the awards at the end of the event, which was held at EHS.

The boys' varsity race was won by Episcopal sophomore Tre Simmons with a time of 17:14 followed closely by T. C. senior Yonael Tekleberhan in 17:21 for second place. T. C. freshman Yeabsera Shire finished third with classmate Eyasu Belaye close behind in fourth place. EHS junior Ben Korkowski placed fifth followed by two Bishop Ireton runners – senior Will Olson in sixth place and Luciano Mateo in seventh. Episcopal freshman Zedekiah Williams finished in eighth place just ahead of T. C. junior Liam Davis-Wallace in ninth and T. C. sophomore Victor Vassallo in tenth place to round out the top ten finishers for All-City honors.
