5. Topsail XC, Wilmington

Coaches: Wayne Rogers & William Dorn

Assistant:  Jamie Franceschini 


Thank you to Coach Dorn for the write up!

Topsail Senior Girls

Sadie Boyle: Sadie was our rock as one of our captains this year. Even though she battled injury for most of the season, she was an indispensable leader.

Alexus Rollins: Alexus worked hard and provided a lot of the comic relief for the women’s team.

Stephanie Simmons: Stephanie very well could be the hardest worker on the team. She was one of our captains and cheered harder for her teammates than anyone.

Alexis Walsh: Alexis is a four-year senior that has consistently pushed herself to do better.

Bailey Wells: Bailey is a great runner with the work ethic to match. We could always count on her to provide a strong finish and stronger leadership.


Topsail Senior Boys 

Jace Bean: Jace is good at challenging himself and reaching goals. You can’t be around him without having an interesting conversation.

Brandon Hayes: Brandon is one of the most positive young men you’ll meet, but runs “mad” and it works for him. He is a mentor for the younger athletes. He works as hard as anyone.

Brad Kimmel: Brad made it into the varsity top seven for the second year in a row and provided a strong finish at regionals to help the team qualify for states.

Brendan Parella: As one of our captains, a four-year runner, and one of our strongest runners, Brendan was integral to the team’s success this year. His leadership is only outdone by his intelligence.

Travis Souza: Even as our team’s number one runner, he always put the well-being of his team and each of his teammates ahead of himself. Travis embodies the idea of selfless service.


Congratulations to Coach Rogers, Dorn and the wider Topsail team, who, along with these inspiring seniors, had a stand out year.  Go Pirates!
