Three runners advance to Semi-State meet

Three individual runners from Decatur County qualified for the Semi-State cross country meet after their performances at the Greensburg Regional meet Saturday.

Greensburg sophomores Peyton Buening and Shelby Pake, along with North Decatur sophomore Megan Hoover, will compete Saturday at Carmel.

Ten teams, including 99 male runners and 90 female runners, competed in a steady rain and windy conditions.

After qualifying for the regional meet, the Greensburg boys placed seventh with 165 points in team competition and the Greensburg girls (200) placed eighth.

It was a bittersweet morning for a pair of South Decatur runners, both sophomores who were racing against seasoned seniors. Justyn Clark, who took runner-up at the County Meet and 10th at sectionals, was 27th overall Saturday. Not only did Clark miss the Semi-State cut by one spot, he fell short by less than a half-second. Eight out of the top 10 individuals were seniors, but Clark is sure to chase a new goal next season.

South’s Ashley Hamilton, who was fifth at the County Meet and 19th at sectionals, took 37th in 21:05.65 and fell short by one spot.

Teams and individuals that qualified from the Franklin Community and South Dearborn sectionals competed at Greensburg. Franklin Community’s boys won the team title with 59 points. The Oldenburg Academy girls won their first cross country regional title in school history, scoring 42 points. Clayton Bowie of Southport was the individual boys champion, covering the 5,000 meters in a time of 15:37.

In the girls’ competition, OA senior Sarah Billingsley defended her individual title and won the race in 18:08.

The top 15 runners in each race earned All-Regional status, while the top 10 individuals not on an advancing team qualified for Semi-State.

North’s Megan Hoover placed fourth overall (second individually), clocking a 19:18.64.

Greensburg’s Shelby Pake placed 19th overall (eighth individually), running in 20:08.51. The mark earned her All-Regional recognition for the second straight year.
