The boys and girls cross country teams competed in the sectional championship on their home course on Saturday with good results for both teams. On the strength of the front running duo of Wes Smith (6th place) and Adam Arndt (7th place), the boys placed 5th in the team standings and will advance to next weekâs regional at Rushville. Strong races by Kyle Downard (37th), Dylan Combs (46th), and Peyton Caldwell (47th), James Smith (58th), and Trevor Hux (65th) helped to hold off a strong Seton Catholic team for the final advancing spot.
The girls placed 6th, a mere 13 points away from the 5th and final qualifying spot. Tylissa Beckner placed 11th overall to lead the Lady Spartans. She was followed by Caroline Arndt (20th), Alexa McDonald (25th), Hallie Wilson (28th), and Sarah Kalkhoff (58th). By virtue of their individual places, Ty, Caroline, Alexa, and Hallie will all move on to the regional as individuals.
Congratulations and good luck to all runners at regionals on Saturday.
