LAFAYETTE--After a week of practicing in rain and high temperatures above 90 degrees the Tiger Cub Cross Country teams competed in cooler temperatures and no rain at the McCutcheon Stampede Cross Country Invitational Saturday.

The girls' team finished second to a very strong Lafayette Harrison team while the boys had to settle for fifth place while running against equally strong Lafayette Jefferson, Kankakee Valley, Lafayette Harrison and McCutcheon.

The Greencastle girls' team was lead by junior Corrie Romer (22:34), who finished seventh and senior Brittany Love (23:24) who placed 11th. Freshman Arianna Pershing had an outstanding finish the last 200 meters to pick up five more spots before the finish line.

"The race was a very competitive race from start to finish," coach Garry Anderson said. "The top 10 places were swapped back and forth throughout the race until the last 1K."

The Lafayette Jefferson boys' team finished with its top five placing in the top twelve at the end of the race.
