Meet Recap

What an impressive race for the fans today! The big favorite (Christian Academy) was defeated, a team (Floyd Central) we beat last week finished third, and the team (New Albany) we have been trying to beat for weeks tied with us for 6th. What neither we nor New Albany thought was that both of us would be eliminated by Heritage Hills, a team with two outstanding runners and the rest of the team pretty average. Their third man finished 41st. We had beaten them previously and never thought that they would run as well as they did. Finishing 2nd and 4th as individuals certainly affected the overall outcome of the meet for them. Jasper has been consistent all season and we felt that they or New Albany would be the teams that we had to beat to advance. While we had beaten Floyd last week, I knew that they would not have consecutive poor races. They never do. We ran well but not well enough for a regional meet. Our top three guys (Schansberg, Pettis, and Sanders) ran well but our next two places have not been consistent this season and that weakness was exposed today. Overall this was a fun race to be a part of but it was also very disappointing to have such a good season come to an abrupt and somewhat unexpected end. Brennan Schansberg will move on to represent us at the Brown County Semi-State next Saturday, and I am very proud of his effort. His is the epitome of the kid that works hard, improves, and overcomes obstacles to be the best he can be.
