PREP: Logan boys finish 2nd, girls 3rd at NCC meet

Logansport’s boys and girls cross country teams once again finished in the upper echelon of the North Central Conference.

The Logan boys finished second and the girls finished third at the NCC meet Tuesday at the Indiana Wesleyan University course in Marion.

Like last week’s Logansport Invitational, the LHS boys finished a distant second to Huntington North. The Vikings finished with 30 points, followed by the Berries (72), New Castle (88), Muncie Central (97), Kokomo (104), Richmond (144), Anderson (192) and Marion (211).

“We ran all right,” Logan coach Chuck LaDow said. “It was a slow course and the conditions were not ideal. It’s usually a fast course, but it was damp and windy which kept the times up.”

Junior Kyle Jordan led the Berries with an eighth place finish in 17:32 to earn all-NCC honors.

Jordan was followed by Jacob Graf (12th, 17:48), Travis Palmer (15th, 17:56), Zeke Alvarez (18th, 18:12), Alex Calisto (19th, 18:13), Audie Kaufman (21st, 18:15) and John Shafer (30th, 18:53).

“Graf getting 12th in the conference as a freshman is pretty good. [Former standout] Kyle [Overway] was 10th or 11th as a freshman,” LaDow said. “We have a bright future with him. He’s going to do some good things for us as long as he stays healthy.”

Palmer’s top-15 finish was especially noteworthy since he was in an intensive care unit just over two months ago following a car crash.

“Travis finished in the top 15 and finally broke into the 17s. That’s amazing that he’s competing at that level so quickly,” LaDow said.

The Logan coach said his team did a good job of following the game plan.

“We knew after running against Huntington at our invite that we were playing catch-up. Our strategy was to go hard to get in a position to win at the mile. We were,” he said. “Our top five was all in the top 15. … We went for it. Huntington’s depth and superior fitness beat us in the second half of the race. I’m not disappointed in what we accomplished at all. Second is not bad.
