Boys Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Cross Country Competes at Golden Bear Invitational

In any regular year, the Eagle cross country teams would spend this past Saturday at the traditional Culver Invitational.  However, this year the Culver race was cancelled, so the Eagles headed to Shelbyville to take part in the Golden Bear Invitational.  On the girl’s side, the Eagles finished 2nd in the small school race to Indian Creek by a margin of only 5 points: 40-45.  In the small school division,  Abby Fleetwood finished 1st followed by her teammate, Hadley Gradolf, in 2nd.  Fleetwood covered the 5k course in a time of 19:33 while Gradolf clocked 19:37.  On the boy’s side, the Eagles finished 6th in the small school division.  Chase Austin once again paced the Eagles, clocking a 16:33 for 9th place overall and 2nd place in the small school division.  The Eagles will have one more meet to prepare for the upcoming tournament as they head to Terre Haute next Saturday night for the Twilight meet.  The sectional meet will follow the next week at Eagle Park.  Other Eagle finishers from Saturday are listed below:
