Meet Recap

Today was the IHSAA State Finals at the Lavern Gibson Course in Terre Haute, Indiana. It was a warm and sunny day, and the girls were excited to compete!

The race got off to a quick start with Carmel’s Sarah Leinheiser and DeKalb’s Tyler Schwartz leading the pack. On a tough course, they came through the first mile in 5:30 with a large pack of elite runners just behind. Very soon it was obvious who would be crowned state champions, as Carmel dominated the race scoring just 44 points. Following in 2nd was a very talented and deep Ft. Wayne Carroll scoring 113 pts. and putting two in the top 10. Homestead also proved to be a very formidable team also with their top two in 7th and 8th. They finished 3rd with 157pts. Zionsville came out strong as well with their first two runners in the top 20.
The battle for 5th was going to be a close one, and it all came down to which team had the most depth. Noblesville led the way with a Abi Little finishing 12th overall in the race. They were able score 245pts. to Fishers 282 today, packing in their 2-5 runners well for a 5th place finish.
Fishers was led by Miya Wai scoring 27pts. for the Tigers in a time of 19:15. She was followed by Tessa Kraft and Abby Carter in 59th and 61st just .7 apart in 19:46 & 19:47. Corinne O’Leary was 73rd with a 20:24, and our 5th scorer of the day was Liz Rogers in 105th with a 20:49. Kamya Lapsley and Corinne Yorkman were 109th and 116th today with 20:54 and 21:06.
As a team the Tigers placed 8th overall, just 6 points behind Bloomington North and 13 points from 6th place team Valparaiso. This was the highest place in Fishers school history!!!

It was a fantastic season and the girls have a lot to be proud of. This is a very young team, and I look forward to seeing what they are able to do in the seasons to come! Great job to all!!!
