The girls cross country team took advantage of perfect running conditions on Saturday, with 4 of the 5 finishers running personal bests at the EIAC meet at Batesville. Continuing what they have done in virtually every race this season, Tylissa Beckner (10th) and Caroline Arndt (11th) ran stride for stride, picking off runners over the final mile to earn All-Conference honors. Sicily Bowling ran a great race to place 26th. Hallie Wilson and Sara Kalkhoff placed 50th and 51st respectively. Ty, Caroline, Sicily and Sara all ran personal bests times by over one minute.
Coach Arndt’s comments: “The team scores don’t reflect how well we ran today. For the girls to run times like they did today was impressive. I’m really proud of them! With sectionals in a couple of weeks, it great to see our performances improve.”
The Spartans will make a return trip to Batesville on Tuesday to compete in the Batesville Invitational.
