Meet Recap

The Tigers traveled to Ft. Wayne, IN this past Saturday to battle several of the best teams in the state in the New Haven Classic. The race featured 467 runners representing 23 teams from around the state.

The Tigers got out to a fast start, led by Josh Roth, who was in 2nd place at the first turn. As the runners closed in on the woods loop (approximately 1400 meters into the race) Roth was in the lead pack which contained, Matthew Yoder (Westview), Parker Jones (Pendleton Heights) and Eric Hoffman (Noblesville). Sam Kuhn, Ethan Meyer, Brandon Reyes and Alex Meyer were with the chase pack as the race shifted into the woods.

As the runners left the woods and headed to the 2 mile mark, Roth was still side by side with the other three competitors while the chase pack had thinned out considerably. Kuhn passed the 2 mile mark in 10th and was in a battle with 5 runners from Carroll, E. Meyer in 17th, and Reyes in 22nd.

In the end, Josh Roth finished with a new PR of 15:44.3 which was good enough for 3rd place. Sam Kuhn outlasted the 5 Carroll runners and finished in 7th with a time of 16:04.04. Reyes finished in 19th, crossing the line in 16:29.0, a new PR. Ethan Meyer was 25th (16:35.0) and Aaron Worley was 26th (16:35.8) to round out the team scoring for the Tigers.

Overall the Tigers had 20 runners set new PRs on the IPFW CC Course with another 16 athletes running their season best for the 5k distance.

The Carroll Chargers won the meet with a total score of 51 points. The Tigers finished 2nd with 80 points, the Noblesville Millers 3rd with 85 points, and the Westview Warriors in 4th with 93 points.

Up next for the Tigers is the HCC Cross Country Championship this Saturday at White River Elementary School in Noblesville.
