~From Greencastle Head Coach, Garry Anderson
We will be having our opening Cross Country meet Tuesday afternoon at 5:00pm with West Vigo at West Vigo. This is a dual meet for both teams. Following this meet on Tuesday the Greencastle teams will be competing at the Fountain Central Grande Prix Invitational at Fountain Central High School at 9:00am on Saturday.
The boys and girls teams are looking forward to competition instead of running workouts. They want to see how the early workouts have paid off. Our teams are both young with a majority of both teams being sophomores and freshmen. The boys team does have eight returning letter winners and the girls have three. I think the boys top five runners will coming from a group of eight runners. Currently the top eight are Senior Jacob Lewis, Juniors Clayton Wilson, Braden Pershing, Cameron Lewis, and Jacob Crawley, Sophomores Ben Gellman and Preston Headley, and Freshman Ethan Tuggles. Their should be quite a battle to determine the top five each meet throughout the season.
The girls will be somewhat shy on numbers but will make up for that with quality talent. There are only seven runners on the team. Seniors Katerina King and Corrie Romer, Sophomore Arianna Pershing, and Freshmen Sydney Lewis, Mika Mozawa, Seeleye Stoffregen, and Emma Wilson. This is a very young team but will be exciting to watch during competition this season.
