TERRE HAUTE -- The Greencastle cross country team traveled to the Terre Haute North Invitational Saturday, an event featuring some of the fastest competition in the state. The Lady Tiger Cubs came away with a nice second-place finish in the girls' 2A race.
No results were available at press time for the boys' race.
In an event featuring three top ten teams in the state and six more ranked in the top 25, GHS girls' coach Garry Anderson saw some solid performances from his girls.
"As you can tell by the rankings of the teams involved, it was a very prestigious and competitive meet," Anderson said. "There were over 300 girls competing in this meet in Terre Haute at the Laverne Gibson course.
"The teams raced together and the results were divided into 1A, 2A, 3A, for both boys and girls teams," he added. "Overall, we would have placed 15th in a combined race with all schools. However in the 2A division we placed second."
Individually for GHS, junior Sara Culler led the way with a 97th-place finish and a time of 21:52. Jasmine Dwiggans was next at 112th (23:16).
Kaitlyn Murtagh placed 122nd (23:35), followed by Felicia Barger in 135th (24:07). Emily Gill was 147th (24:27), Ivonne Martinez was 164th (25:41) and Olivia Humphreys was 177th (27:00).
