The boys team had another solid performance to stay ahead of defending champ Clinton Prairie to claim our first County Championship since 2014. We stuck to our race plan even though Clinton Prairie tried to run away with the race early. At the 3k mark, the meet scoring appeared to be tied. However, our endurance, training, and guts allowed us to overtake them in the 2nd half of the race and clinch the County Championship. We had a lot of good individual performances highlighted by Jared Wells’ first individual County Championship and All-County honors to Hugo Hernandez and Michael Corro. Next weekend, we will prepare for our goal of getting to semi-state by running on the semi-state course at the New Prairie Invitational. There are 3 different races according to class size, and we will compete in the 2A class size out of the 3.

The girls team had the goal of finishing in the top 2 after being 3rd last year, and we barely got by Rossville on the tie-breaker rule. The 6th runner breaks the tie, Rossville did not have a 6th runner, so we finished ahead of them as a result. Blazia Sallee was our lone All-County runner, but the rest of our girls did a good job of competing well to reach our team goal. The girls also will be competing at the New Prairie Invitational to gain valuable experience on a course that no one on the team has run much less seen before.
