Wednesday, September 7, 2011

The Greencastle Middle School cross country team battled North Clay and Speedway in a tri-meet. The boys' team won with a total of 25 points, while the girls won with a total of 19 points.

Jacob Kessler led the boys' team in his first race of his career, winning with a time of 11:30. Logan Beck followed with a time of 12:05. Ben Gelman finished with a time of 12:13, while Jacob Lewis ran a time of 12:38. Peyton Jones rounded out the Tiger Cubs' top five runners with a time of 12:59.

Hannah Brattain won the girls' event with a time of 12:46, with Katie Haynes finishing with a time of 13:33. Corrie Romer was the Tiger Cubs' second runner at the start of the race, but stopped to help a teammate and finished fourth with a time of 14:10. Head coach Art Dwigans said Romer's performance was "one of our gutsiest performances from a girl or boy this year."

Katie Kessler finished fifth on the night with a time of 14:37 and Lily Spencer was seventh overall with a time of 15:04.

"I was really pleased with the kids effort tonight," Dwigans said. "It was a cool breezy evening but I thought a great night for racing. Our team is coming together closer and gaining experience each time we race."
