Cross country
Both LHS teams run 2nd of 3
LAWRENCEVILLE - Lawrenceville High School's cross country runners did their best to chase down Olney Thursday afternoon, to little avail.

Olney won both the boys and girls meets over the course that starts and finishes in Lawrenceville City Park, while the Indians finished ahead of Fairfield in both races.

"We ran much better this afternoon," said LHS co-coach Bill Bandy. "Both squads were aggressive. We know Olney is good, so we were proud of the kids for going after them."

Boys meet

Olney won with 29 points, while LHS had 42 and Fairfield 58.

Bandy noted that the Indians had a gap of 2:47 between the third and fourth runners in Tuesday's meet at Effingham.

"Today we closed that gap to 48 seconds," Bandy said. "We told them at practice Wednesday that the time spreads were too large, and there was a good response from the team."

Bandy noted that the Indians' had a split of 3:48 among the top five Tuesday, compared to 1:41 Thursday. He also noted that Indians lost to Fairfield in Saturday's meet at Edwardsville, before handily beating them Thursday.

Sophomore Connor Holmes led LHS by placing fourth in 18:32, while teammates Zach Kocher and Tristan Davis were sixth and seventh, both in 18:53. Dylan Volkman (12th in 20:22) and Harry Loeb (13th in 20:23) also scored for LHS.

Fairfield's Corbin Kakae won the race in 17:22. Olney was led by the 2-3 finish of Connor Schonert (17:49) and Dalyn Brach (18:00).

Girls meet

Olney runners Michaela Dowty (22:55), Kylar Craig (23:07) and Aaron Bronam (23:14) held down the top three spots, as the Tigers finished with 20 points. Lawrenceville scored 40 and Fairfield 67.

"The girls competed well, but we only have five runners," Bandy said. "Two of our girls are still early in their conditioning, and Heather Hill will be out for another week with a foot issue. When we can get everyone healthy and fully-trained, we will do just fine."

Senior Katie Liberman (23:25) and Andie Scherer (23:45) ran fourth and fifth for LHS. Hannah Burkhart (seven in 24:09), Meredith Spitz (10th in 24:38) and Macey Paddick (14th in 27:44) rounded out the team.

Bandy said the Indians have dropped out of Saturday's Chrisman "Cow Chip" Invitational The team will run Tuesday with Mount Carmel in a meet at Princeton, Ind.
