Meet Recap

 

The MVHS XC ‘Cats had a strong showing at the Big 8 Meet despite the cool, damp conditions. This year’s race was held at Princeton High School featuring one of the biggest hills we run all season. The boys strong run earned them 3rd place in the conference which is filled with the area’s top runners. Only the top 10 places earn All-Confernce honors and Mount Vernon claimed two of those spots!

imageCongratulations to Adam Duckworth who ran a personal best breaking the 17 minute barrier for the first time on his way to a 5th place finish (16:39.4). Congratulations also to Micah Keller who has just missed the cut each of the last two years. Today he ran his best time at this course earning a 9th place finish (17:11.5).
Johnathan West busted out a personal best of 18:05.2 for a 20th place finish. Right behind him was Noah Keller in 21st with an 18:05.98. Cade Latshaw ran a strong race with a season best 19:04.1, finishing in 27th and rounding out the team score. Both Kaleb McCaffry and Mitchell Wilson ran PR’s by nearly 30 seconds each running 19:31.5 and 19:43.2 respectively.
Only one runner in the top 10 was a senior, so we are set for royal battles for years to come!
In the JV race, MV was led by Luke McGennis who finished 10th with a PR of 19:53.1. Devin Singer fought through a side-stitch to finish 20th (21:22.5) while Danner Latshaw ran his best race of the year finishing 24th in 22:24.4.

Congratulations ‘Cats! We are looking forward to seeing you next week at the IHSAA Sectional at Angel Mounds.
