Last night both Cross Country teams qualified for Regionals. This is the first time since 2006 that both teams have qualified for Regionals in the same season. Josh Hiatt led the team to a 5th place finish with a 12th place finish to earn individual honors. What was more impressive is that Josh lost one of his shoes in the first 200 meters of the race and ran the remainder of the race with only one shoe. Armando Luja placed 18th to also earn individual honors. Also placing for the boys’ team were Deric Laurent (21st), Brayan Pizano (27th), and Michael Meyer (46th).
The girls’ team finished 4th and were led by Paige Boatright’s 7th place finish to earn individual honors. Also placing for the girls were Kelly Workman (26th), Hayley Newman (27th), Brianna Dishong (31st), and Kaylee Covella (31st).
Both teams will race this Saturday at the Marion Regional at Indiana Wesleyan University. The boys will run at 10:30 and the girls at 11:15.
