XC teams compete at annual Logansport Invite

XC teams compete at annual Logansport Invite


Jacob Graf led Logansport’s boys team with a ninth place finish in 17:12. He was followed by Alex Calisto (20th, 17:56), Orlando Toloza (26th, 18:12), Kyle Jordan (31st, 18:17) and Zach Hoover (66th, 19:22).

“We ran pretty well,” Logan coach Chuck LaDow said. “I gave up some varsity spots to let my seniors run and it ended up costing us. We would have finished in fifth. We would have been competitive with Winamac. But that’s OK, we’re still a couple weeks from that really mattering.

“Overall I thought Jake Graf ran a pretty good race. He’s had a tough week with the loss of his grandpa. He came out and ran tough. I was equally impressed with Orlando Toloza, who’s my first-year senior. He ran a PR tonight. Two guys that I ended up running on the JV went 1-2 running PRs, which was Kenny Echols and Trevor Benn. So those guys will be stepping in there on the conference roster and sectional, hopefully can get us up there in contention for the team title.”

Winamac had a strong showing in both the girls and boys events, placing fourth in both. Winamac’s girls scored 143 points and the boys had 118.

Claire Collins led the Lady Warriors with a fourth place finish in 20:11, setting a school record in the process. She was followed by Kial Beach (20th, 21:41), Dagny Zupin (35th, 22:26), Sara Bailey (43rd, 22:39) and Jaydyn Scott (49th, 22:49).

Zen Zupin (16:49) and Kyle Collins (17:00) placed fifth and sixth for the Warrior boys team, respectively. They were followed by Derek Dotlich (22nd, 18:02), Braden Tankersly (25th, 18:05) and Joe Vontoble (61st, 19:14).

The Lewis Cass girls had two runners place in the top 12 in Haley Johnson (10th, 21:00) and Gabi Carney (12th, 21:10). They were followed by Sydnye Combs (69th, 24:07), Megan Greer (97th, 27:50) and Ivette Prado (103rd, 28:36).

The Kings finished 11th in the girls race (250) and 14th in the boys (385). Cass’ boys were led by Cail Brown, who placed 44th in 18:44, followed by Lucas Bowman (74th, 19:47), Nolan Sharpless (105th, 21:37), Austin Hoch (106th, 21:45) and Brady Bryan (111th, 22:10).
