High school cross country
Indians compete well at Patriot Invitational


PEORIA - Lawrenceville High School's cross country teams ran well in general at Saturday's Patriot Invitational, although it might not have showed up in the results.

"Coach (John) Christy and I are very proud of both the boys and girls teams," LHS co-coach Bill Bandy said. "Most of the runners ran their best times of the year in a very tough meet."

The meet is run on the three-mile course at Detweiller Park. It is the course that will host the Illinois High School Association state finals on Nov. 9.

Lawrenceville's boys team placed 23rd in a field of 34 full teams with a team score of 587.

The LHS girls team, made up of runners from both Lawrence County high schools, finished 15th in a field of 27 teams with a team score of 391.

The Indians' Hannah Holmes became the first girl in the history of the LHS program to break 20 minutes on a three-mile course, according to Bandy. Holmes led the Lawrenceville efforts as she finished 31st in a field of 211 in 19:46. Heather Holmes (50th in 20:36), Maddie Liberman (83rd in 22:03), Hannah Burkhardt (113th in 23:02) and Rosie Aguirre (114th in 23:02) completed the scoring for the Indians.
