Pirate runners, 5 individuals regional bound

Both Greensburg cross country teams and five individuals from county schools advanced to Saturday’s Greensburg Regional at the South Dearborn Sectional meet Tuesday.

Qualifying for the regional individually were sophomore Megan Hoover, senior Brady Holloway and sophomore Arek Holloway from North Decatur, and South Decatur sophomores Justyn Clark and Ashley Hamilton.

Greensburg’s girls placed third, while Greensburg’s boys placed fifth. The Pirate boys qualified for the regionals for the second year in a row.

South’s Hamilton placed 19th overall and Clark finished 10th.

“I’m really happy for Megan, Brady, and Arek,” said North head coach Scott Johnson. “We would have loved to have gotten both teams out, but getting three individuals out is a nice consolation prize. We are looking forward to Saturday and representing North Decatur at the regional.”

The host Knights placed four runners in the top ten and won their fourth straight sectional title. Knight senior Joseph Rector won with a time of 16:42. Oldenburg Academy’s girls won the sectional with 29 points, while OA senior Sarah Billingsley took first place with a time of 18:32.

Freshman Reid McClintic led the Pirates, finishing 11th overall to earn all-sectional honors. Reid ran under 18:00 for the first time, establishing a new personal best of 17:58.

Sophomore Peyton Buening was all-sectional for the second time, taking 16th place in 18:29.

Freshman Greg Schroeder placed 18th and was also all-sectional in a time of 18:29, his fastest time ever for 5km. Freshman Louis Moore also ran a personal best on Tuesday. Moore placed 39th in 19:39. Freshman Kevin Johnson took 41st in 19:50, while senior Ethan Sebastian was 42nd in 19:56. Junior Jonathan Richards ran 20:41 and finished 53rd.

The boys’ record is now 54-54.

“I was really proud the way that the freshmen ran for us tonight,” said Greensburg coach Troy Davis. “Reid, Greg, Louis, and Kevin all competed at a high level. They gained some valuable experience for Saturday’s meet.”
