Royals seventh at Yorktown
Ahead of today’s Hancock County meet, the Eastern Hancock boys cross country team placed seventh out of 17 teams at the Yorktown Invitational Saturday.
Jacob Mueller (17:50) was 12th for EH, followed by Gabe Blake (34th), Parker West (36th), Nathan Kell (57th) and Mitchell Scott (67th).
Coach Rex Putt said it was the boys’ best invitational showing of the season.
“It was the first time this year we had our six best runners healthy and competing in the same meet, and we performed well,” Putt said. “Gabe and Parker did a good job staying together and Jacob did a super job towards the front of the competitive field. If our fourth and fifth runners (currently Kell and Scott) continue to improve in the next few weeks, we can be a serious challenger for the conference team title in October.”
The girls team was also seventh, with Kiersten Schrope (21st), Hope Spaulding (29th), Cara Johnson (32nd), Karlee Gray (41st) and Paige Schuyler (56th) finishing as the top five runners.
“Our girls were just too spread out to be effective as a team. We’ve been working on running in a pack, but when we don’t, our team score plummets,” Putt said. “Running in a pack is something we’ll continue to work on for better results at the end of our season.”
The county meet is today at Brandywine Park in Greenfield.
