XC teams compete at annual Logansport Invite

XC teams compete at annual Logansport Invite

Logansport hosted its annual cross country invitational on Tuesday at the Berry Patch course.

Twin Lakes took the top team honors in the 14-team girls event with 64 points, and Kokomo won the 16-team boys event with 78 points.

Northwestern’s Taryn Thor was the individual girls winner in 18:35, and Kokomo’s Jeremy Breedlove won the boys event in 16:21.

The host Berries finished sixth in the girls event (166 points) and seventh in the boys race (149).

Jen Crafford led the Lady Berries with a 29th place finish in 22:12. She was followed by Maddi Zartman (32nd, 22:23), Gracie Musselman (34th, 22:24), Megan Martin (40th, 22:37) and Ashlyn Lythgoe (42nd, 22:38).

“Jen Crafford ran a pretty good race for us tonight,” Logan coach Brian Morrill said. “She still has a pretty good blister on her toe from Saturday’s race so she wore her training shoes tonight and ran it more like a hard workout. She has more in the tank for conference and the sectional. We need to get Megan Martin and Maddi Zartman back to where they were on this course last year at sectional, which is about 40 seconds faster for Megan and 20 seconds faster for Maddi. They know it is there because they have been faster in practices and meets all year. I thought Gracie Musselman had another outstanding race for us. She is just so consistent from race to race and almost always finishes in our top 3 or 4. We didn’t run Kourtney True tonight due to some knee issues, but it was more precautionary than anything so she can be ready to go at the conference meet next Tuesday [at Marion].

“It looks like the sectional is going to come down to Northwestern, Logansport and Maconaquah for the last two spots to qualify for regional. Northwestern got us by 1 point tonight and we got Maconaquah by 9, but a smaller meet like the sectional can turn the scoring around in a hurry. It is going to come down to the individual battles inside the pack and whoever wins those will come out on top.”
