Greensburg JH Cross Country

Saturday morning the Greensburg Junior High Cross Country Teams traveled to Nashville, IN to participate in the 20th annual Brown County Eagle Classic Invitational. The Boys team placed 16th out of 34 participating schools and the Girls team placed 18th out of 33 participating schools.

The Pirates were led by Quinton Walker who placed 18th out of a total of 218 runners. Quinton set a new career PR of 10:40.2 making him the 6th fastest 8th grader in school history. Next up was Jackson Tekulve who broke the 12 minute barrier for the first time and is now the 3rd fastest 6th grader in school history. The following 4 Pirates ran personal best times all qualifying for the State meet. Ethan Clifford, Henry Corya, Mason McNulty, and Brody Sanders all shed at least 20 seconds or more to extend the Boys team season an extra week. Jack Bennett shed the most time by dropping over a minute and breaking 14:00 for the first time!

The Lady Pirates were also PR stars dropping significant time. Madeline Risher led the girls with a 49th place finish out of 214 total runners. Following Madeline were 4 ladies, Lulu Webb, Eleanor Davis, Sophie Buening and Haleigh Stewart all running State qualifying times under 14 minutes. Other large improvements came from Tensley Brewsaugh and Emma O’Sullivan both running sub 15 for the first time this season. Emma shed the most time by dropping 1:28 from her previous best.

The JV girls also ran outstanding times. Jesse Harper, Ella Kate Stewart, Maddie Brewsaugh, Mickinzi Hollin, and Anastasia Ridzon all dropped nearly a minute or more from their previous best times. Anastasia improved the most by dropping over 4 minutes!

The Pirates compete again in the Columbus Central Classic on Tuesday this week.
