Abramson, Avon girls pace county at semistate



Sydney Simpson, Marina Pfeil, Mady Hayden, and Saige Woodford, Anne Kritenstein and Hannah Snider rounded out the Plainfield team.

Brownsburg’s team of Julia Popenfoose, Cassidy Brown, Allison Hering, Alex Smock, Brianna Channon, Rachel Graham, and Mackenzie Vondersaar finished 16th.

Tri-West senior Carrie Chappell finished 120th.


The boy’s race included full teams for Avon and Brownsburg, along with individuals for Plainfield and Danville. However, Avon’s Presley Martin was the lone runner proving fast enough to advance to the state meet as he finished eighth among runners not advancing with teams.

“This was a strong field today,” Martin said. “I tried to come out and put our team in the best position for the team to advance (to state). This was a big meet, and an important one for me.”

While Martin advanced, the Avon and Brownsburg teams came up a little short. Avon finished in seventh, one position shy of advancement, while Brownsburg combined for a ninth place outcome.

Avon coach Zach Toothman found it hard to be just one team spot shy of advancing.

“We were ready all week, and thought we moved up well in the second half of the race,” Toothman said. “We got a little too far behind the teams we needed to be up with and came up a little bit short.”

Taylor Kleyn, Will Anderson, Jon Cramer, Alec Scheerer, Leo Merchan, and Keegan Ridgway also represented Avon.

Brownsburg coach Bret Neylon was more upbeat about the Bulldogs’ finish.

“I was very happy with our boys,” Neylon said. “When you look at where we were at the beginning of the season to where we finished today, I could not be happier with them.  To make it to semistate and have a strong race is really a feather in their caps.”

Hariharan Sathyamurthy (39th) led Brownsburg, which also ran Mark Bond, Seth Webster, Elijah Wagner, Marcus Fierek, Brandon Britton, and John Thomas.

Plainfield senior Joel Thompson was 16th among runners without team advancement, just shy of making state.

Danville freshman Daniel Gerber (67th) and senior Sam Bratton (113th) also ran the boys’ race.
