Pirates runners, both boys and girls, win competitive County Meet

Cross country runners from the three Decatur County schools converged at Greensburg High School Thursday for the annual County Meet.

The weather was sunny and calm, with a hint of the fall season evident in the cobwebs that floated between the trees and above the course.

Both Greensburg teams won their respective races. Greensburg sophomore Peyton Buening won the boys race, while North Decatur sophomore Megan Hoover won the girls race.

The top 10 runners in each race earned All-County status, regardless of team finish or size.

Greensburg’s boys scored 23 points, North scored 49 and South Decatur scored 62. Greensburg’s girls scored 20 points, North tallied 43 and South’s girls brought along four runners for an incomplete team.

Buening clocked a first-place time of 17:34 for Greensburg, winning his first career high school race.

He is a two-time All-County runner.

“I was really proud of Peyton’s performance tonight,” said Greensburg head coach Troy Davis. “He ran a very aggressive race and won his first high school cross country race.”

South sophomore Justyn Clark took second in 18:01, while Greensburg’s Reid McClintic was third in 18:34. Ethan Sebastian (Greensburg) was fourth in 18:41, making him a three-time All-County runner. Greg Schroeder (Greensburg) was fifth in 18:59. Taking sixth was North’s Brady Holloway (19:07), while North’s Arek Holloway was seventh in 19:29.

North’s Tyler Jennings tallied a personal-best time of 19:31 for eighth place, while South’s Nick Grissom also ran a PR of 19:32 for ninth. Placing 10th and rounding out the All-County lineup is Greensburg’s Kevin Johnson (19:37).

Boys results: 11. Jonathan Richards (GB) 19:46; 12. Louis Moore (GB) 19:59; 13. Gage Acton (ND) 20:12; 14. Tyler Wamsley (SD) 21:00; 15. Zach Johnson (ND) 21:08; 16. Kyle Fogle (ND) 21:18; 17. Luke Badgley (ND) 21:32; 18. Brandon Overlock (SD) 22:00; 19. Daniel Mapes (SD) 22:09.

Greensburg’s April Morrow ran a 22:04 for fourth place. South’s Ashley Hamilton clocked a 22:07 for fifth, and Greensburg’s Ellie Burkhart placed sixth in 22:48. Greensburg senior Erin Hamilton was seventh in 23:00, making her a four-time All-County runner. Greensburg’s Mary Kate Porter was eighth in 23:38 for her second All-County performance. Taking ninth was South’s Stacy Fox (24:21), and South senior Emily Mapes was 10th in 24:28 to round out the girls’ All-County team.
