INDIANAPOLIS -- While his track teammates were at North Montgomery competing in the Charger Relays Friday Night, GHS senior Andy Weatherford was at Franklin Central High School competing in the Flashes Indy Showcase.

The "mile" in most track meets is actually 1,600 meters, 9.34 meters short of a full mile. In this "true mile" event, 1,600 meter defending-state-champion Weatherford finished second with a time of 4:15.4.

The surprise winner of the event was Brown County's Curtis Carr, who ran a 4:13.6, holding off Weatherford and third place finisher De'Sean Turner of Warren Central.
