Meet Recap

On a beautiful day at the 29th Annual First to the Finish Invitational in Peoria, Illinois, the Fishers Tigers battled some of the best teams in the state of Illinois. The Tigers finished 5th overall, missing 4th by just two points. The meet featured 47 teams and 431 runners.

Josh Roth ran near the front group throughout the majority of the race, navigating the tight turns, soft course, and extremely muddy far loop. Roth finished in 15th overall on the 3 miles course in 15:38.3. Ethan Meyer, Sam Kuhn and Alex Meyer were strong throughout the race, running in the top 50. Ethan crossed the line in 40th place (16:04.7) while Kuhn was right on his heels in 41st (16:05.0). Alex Meyer was 7 seconds back in 54th place, crossing the line at 16:12.4. The move of the meet came from Peter Werling who worked his way through the field to finish in 68th with a time of 16:18.3
