Peyton Buening paced the Pirates to their best performance of the season. Buening finished 23rd in 17:22 and ninth individually to qualify for the Semi-State.

Freshmen Greg Schroeder broke 18:00 for the first time as he placed 35th in 17:53. Reid McClintic earned 43rd in 18:05, with teammate Ethan Sebastian taking 46th in a season-best time of 18:09.

Kevin Johnson and Louis Moore ended their freshman seasons with personal bests. Johnson ran 19:15 and took 77th, while Moore’s time was 19:35 and he placed 82nd.

The Pirate boys concluded their season with a record of 57-60.

“I was really proud of the boys’ performances this morning,” said Greensburg head coach Troy Davis. “We competed at a very high level and beat Batesville and Oldenburg for the first time this season.”

For the Greensburg girls, freshman Allie Reisman finished in 52nd place with a time of 21:58. Freshman April Morrow was the next finisher for Greensburg, placing 57th in 22:18. Freshman Ellie Burkhart ran a personal best of 22:23 to earn 59th. Sophomore Mary Kate Porter also ran her best time ever for 5 km.

The Lady Pirates finish the season with a record of 75-36.

“I would like to thank our senior captains for their time, effort, and dedication over the last four years,” said Coach Davis. Ethan and Erin have been a big part of the program’s success since they were freshmen.”

Competing in the final meets of the season were North Decatur senior Brady Holloway and sophomore Arek Holloway. They placed sixth and seventh in the County Meet, respectively, and 31st and 35th in the sectional. Brady Holloway took 69th in 19:06.75, while Arek was 74th in 19:11.64.
