Logan XC has good showing at NCCs

Cass volleyball gets win over Western; Winamac tops TC.

Logansport’s cross country teams both finished in the upper echelon of the North Central Conference meet Tuesday at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion.

The Berry girls finished in second place while the boys finished third.

In the girls race, Logansport totaled 61 points, while Huntington North won the meet with 15 points. Marion was third (75), followed by Muncie Central (127), Kokomo (150), Anderson (155) and Richmond (186).

“We really ran tough [Tuesday], and I am really proud of the mindset they brought into this meet,” said LHS coach Brian Morrill. “I think this is the most mentally prepared we have been yet this year. They were all focused and intense prior to the start of the race and they maintained that intensity throughout [Tuesday].

“I’m really happy for Megan Martin in her senior year to be able to help this team finish second in the conference. She has been a big part of our program for all four years and we have been third the last two years over here. It’s tough to move up against these teams because when you get close to the top everyone works hard – so it is no easy task to improve your position. All seven girls did an awesome job tonight. Gracie Musselman had to sit out due to a foot injury and we hope we can get her back prior to the sectional and we subbed Abbi Zartman in for her and we didn’t miss a beat.”

Jen Crafford was the top Logansport runner with an eighth place finish (21:16.4), followed by Maddi Zartman (10th, 21:32.1), Megan Martin (13th, 21:52.4), Ashlyn Lythgoe (14th, 21:56.2) and Alanna Echols (20th, 22:38.9).

In the boys race, Logansport finished with 75 points. Huntington North was first (30) and Kokomo was second (34). Marion was fourth (111), followed by Muncie Central (125), Anderson (172) and Richmond (207).

Jacob Graf led the Berries with a seventh place finish (17:13), followed by Kyle Jordan (13th, 17:49.80), Alex Calisto (17th, 18:04.68), Orlando Toloza (18th, 18:10.55) and Kenny Echols (20th, 18:19.72).
