In the Elementary School category, Woodland Elementary was victorious with a total of 444 points, 132 points more than its total in 2017 when it placed second to Paris Elementary. Monarch Elementary was second this year with a total of 370 points (which was an increase of 168 points over 2017). Woodland's point total was boosted by having 43 students finish one of the three races in the 41st TD Bank Reedy River Run (10K, 5K or Youth Mile). AJ Whittenburg placed third with 266 points. (See results below).
In the Middle School category it was once again a close contest between Tanglewood and RIverside, with Tanglewood winning by 28 points. Both schools had 14 students finish one of the races, but Tanglewood won by having 23 adults also finish. Greenville Middle Academy was third with 132 points.
Both Woodland Elementary and Tanglewood Middle schools will receive a $500 donation from the Greenville Track Club in conjunction with the TD Bank Reedy River Run.

2018 Results for the Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup
ScanSource not only repeated as winners of the "Most Finishers Under 75 Minutes in the 10K" category, but also defeated two-time defending champion GE to win the "Fastest Corporate Team" category, too.
In its third year, the Darrell Jennewine Corporate Cup Challenge is named in memory of the late Greenville Track Club administrator who devoted much of his later life to promoting fitness through running in the Greenville community. The Challenge has two categories: one for the "Fastest Corporate Team" and the other for the "Most Finishers Under 75 minutes". The Fastest Team competition calculates the six fastest finishers times for an aggregate total and then subtracts a time bonus of 30 seconds for each additional team finisher under 75 mins (with a maximum of 10 counted toward the bonus).
Fastest Corporate Teams in 10K 1. ScanSource = 4 hours, 23 minutes, 27 seconds (4:23:27) or 15807 seconds 2. Michelin = 4:35:59 or 16559 seconds 3. GE = 4:49:16 or 17356 seconds 4. BMW = 4:58:22 or 17902 seconds 5. TD Bank = 5:08:18 or 18498 seconds 6. GHS = 5:30:59 or 19859 seconds
In the Most Finishers Under 75 Minutes category, ScanSource unseated defending champion GE as ScanSource had 34 runners under the 75 minute goal. It was also a new record as they bested GE's total of 24 runners in 2016. ScanSource had 19 runners under 75 minutes last year.
