Tuesday, September 7, 2010

TERRE HAUTE -- The Greencastle girls' cross country team placed 17th out of 35 teams at the Terre Haute Savings Bank State Preview Invitational Saturday.

The race was held a the Laverne-Gibson and according the Greencastle head coach Garry Anderson, the weather was ideal and the results indicated that.

Colleen Weatherford led the GHS runners with a 51st finish in a time of 20:53.1. Emily Gill placed 72nd with a time of 21:23.7, while Kayla Cash was 118th with a time of 22:20.5.

Abigail Wilson finished the day in 134th in a time of 22:26.6, with Paige Pickens finishing a close 138th with a time of 22:29.8. Megan Haynes was 221st (24:47.1), Cheyenne Fauvergue was 245th (25:38.6) and Jasmine Dwigans was 256th (26:33.1) Brooke Plummer (27:09.1, 275th) and Katie Burns (28:05.7, 283rd) rounded out the Greencastle runners.

"We had several new season and personal bests coming from this race," Anderson said. "I wasn't sure how some of the team members would respond to this caliber of competition, but they really did well. There is work to be done with some small things about racing tactics, mental preparation and how to finish the race that we have to work on to make us a better team. Hopefully we will race against some of these teams later down the road to see how we stack up.

"The front five of Greencastle, Colleen Weatherford, Emily Gill, Kayla Cash, Abigail Wilson and Paige Pickens lead the rest of the team from start to finish," Anderson said. "Our freshmen are really starting to pick up on how to race and not just running cross country. They will only get better with more meets and invitationals like the one today (Saturday)."

The invitational featured 35 teams and 322 runners.
