HHS Cross Country Second and Third at Shelbyville
Hagerstown’s boys’ cross country team placed second of 13 teams and the girls third of 12 teams in the A/AA competition at the Golden Bear Shelbyville Cross Country Invitational on a hot and muggy Saturday morning. Logan Tuttle led the Tigers with a third place finish in 16:49, and six Tigers placed in the top 25. Kaleb Slagle was sixth, Eli Halcomb 14th, Holden Robinson 19th, Dylan Napier 20th, and Seth Richards 22nd. Tuttle commented on his performance, “I love this course, but it was super hot. I think it went pretty well with all the heat and humidity.” The event winner was Christian Academy of Indiana who is currently ranked first in the small-school poll. “I was pleased with our effort in the heat,” said Coach Kent Gray. “Looking at the times coming in, I didn’t think we could stay within 40 points of Christian Academy who is number one in the small school poll and 15 this week in the all-class poll. They got us by 22, which is significant, but we were much closer than I expected. I’m very proud of our boys.” The Tigers also placed 11th of 30 teams among all classes and are currently ranked fourth in the state among small schools.
Top Five A/AA Team Scores: Christian Academy 37, HHS 59, Speedway 72, Cascade 106, Waldron 120.
All-Class Top Five: Avon, Southport, Christian Academy, Zionsville, Brebeuf
For the ladies, Logan McRoberts was the top Tiger, finishing fifth in the A/AA competition in 22:14. Anna Shafer raced to 11th and Madison Zetzl, 27th, Maci Matanich, 28th, and Bailey Foor, 34th, completed the top five for HHS. As a team the girls were third in the A/AA results and 15th of 29 overall. Coach Gray elaborated, “The ladies snapped back well after a lackluster meet at Connersville on Tuesday with a good performance today. I expected us to be about 6th to 8th, so I’m most happy about third. All our runners finished strong and survived the heat. Many girls dropped from the race and three were taken by ambulance to the local hospital with heat exhaustion. A girl from Brownsburg collapsed right in front of us with about 50 meters to go, and it took some time to revive her–very scary.”
Top Five A/AA Scores: Cascade 60, Union County 62, Hagerstown 82, Southwestern 96, Wisdom Builders 99
All-Class Top Five: Brebeuf, Brownsburg, Franklin Central, Guerin, Southport
