School record falls at South Dearborn Invite

Aurora — South Dearborn hosted its 13th annual cross country invitational Saturday morning, which included Greensburg, North Decatur and South Decatur. The weather conditions were ideal for setting school records and individual-best performances.

North head coach Scott Johnson could not have been more pleased with his runners, and the girls ran a season’s best race by placing second.

Freshman Megan Hoover broke North’s five-kilometer school record to lead her team.

“It was a great day for North Decatur cross country!” exclaimed head coach Scott Johnson. “Megan Hoover shattered our girls’ 5K school record, the girls’ team placed second and the guys placed fourth in a big invitational, and every runner had a PR. I couldn’t have asked for more. It is nice to see all of their hard work in practice paying off.”

Oldenburg Academy won the Division II race with a score of 29. OA’s Sarah Billingsley, who set her school’s record earlier this season, won Saturday with a time of 18 minutes, 37 seconds.
